International Business Concentration

A concentration in International Business (IB) provides students with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary for successful careers in the global business environment.  BSBA students must combine the International Business Concentration with another BSBA Concentration.  With this preparation, graduates will be prepared for employment in many manufacturing, service, or knowledge-based industries with international markets, international suppliers, international sources of finance, or an internationally diverse workforce.

For this concentration, students complete a total of eighteen (18) credit hours, including twelve (12) credit hours in required courses, and six (6) credit hours in electives.
