Department of Management, College of Business and Economics

32 credits

Introduction

This minor is designed for students who want to add an international business dimension to a major in another functional area, either in the College of Business and Economics or in one of the other majors at Western Washington University. The student who completes this minor will have a) a general introduction to the cultural, institutional and regulatory structures necessary to do international business; b) two courses that add more focused international knowledge, and c) a course on the management and strategic issues in doing business internationally. Students from outside the College of Business and Economics will also acquire a basic knowledge of the ‘language’ of business and economics.

Why Consider an International Business Minor?

An International Business Minor prepares a student to work with business relationships across borders in a variety of situations. Graduates should be able to help manage these business relationships that are central to the global environment that will define their careers.
