International Business

The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in International Business provides a strong foundation in the current issues and problems that you will encounter in an increasingly global marketplace. By choosing this concentration you have the unique opportunity to learn from the practical application of basic managerial principles. You will also have the opportunity to analyze business activities across cultures, social and environmental consequences of location decisions, and the alternative uses of resources. When you complete this program, you will have the tools needed to make strategic choices required of managers when entering new markets and competing in the overseas environments. An integral component of the program is the required internship or practicum. Both of these will afford you the opportunity to travel overseas and study in different cultural and economic settings.
