Business Administration — International Business Concentration, BA


Return to: Programs of Study

Department of Management, College of Business and Economics

88-90 credits

Introduction/What is the Study of Business Administration?

The Business Administration program has been designed to prepare students for leadership roles in business and the community. One program objective is to provide students with the perceptual and analytical skills necessary to make decisions and evaluate policies in business; another is to develop student understanding of the social, economic and regulatory environments in business. The program is designed for students with a variety of career goals, including opportunities with financial institutions, manufacturing and retail firms, service industries and the public sector.

Why Consider an International Business Concentration in Business Administration Major? 

An International Business concentration prepares a student to work with business relationships across borders in a variety of situations. Often combining some training in language and in other business areas, graduates should be able to help manage these business relationships that are central to the global environment that will define their careers. For more information, see the IBUS website.
