BBA International Business

Dear International Business Major:

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed below each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. Two sample schedules are provided as general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term (one includes summer semester matriculation and one does not).  The elective courses must be selected with your advisor to satisfy all core curriculum and state, lab science, and multicultural requirements.

International Business (IB) is a discipline that deals with how business addresses the needs of customers and institutions in an increasingly global business environment. IB professionals are often responsible for developing and maintaining relationships with a variety of individuals across different time zones, national boundaries, and cultures. They are also aware of the various differences in the conduct of business given the country or culture that they are addressing. Students who graduate with an IB degree find jobs in all different types of industries and environments, whether it is for a U.S. company that deals with international commerce or with overseas companies that require assistance from individuals who have an understanding of multicultural environments.

Students who complete the major in IB will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree. The program in international business is approved by the Langdale College of Business, an AACSB accredited business school. All IB majors complete the general education requirements in Areas A through E along with the 18 hours of major prerequisites in Area F before applying for admittance into the business school. Additionally, students will take 18 hours of business core classes along with at 24 hours of international business coursework. These courses, along with 9 hours of a foreign language and 9 hours of cross cultural studies, provide each student with a solid background in IB within a global environment.
