Business Administration Major: International Business Concentration

With a growing global economy, it is important to understand different cultures and how business is conducted abroad. While international business topics are incorporated in the business administration major, students may choose to focus on it with the international business concentration. This concentration provides students with a more global view of business while also allowing them to study and understand other cultures and languages.

Students complete the major in Business Administration and 24 units of International Business Concentration requirements.

These requirements are for catalog year 2015-2016. If your catalog year is different, please refer to the specific requirements in your specific catalog.
