Earl N. Phillips School of Business

Global Commerce Minor

The Phillips School of Business offers two options in international business:

  1. Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) Degree in International Business
  2. Minor in Global Commerce

The International Business major emphasizes international business, international economics and other global courses, combined with indepth language study in either Chinese, French, or Spanish.

The Global Commerce minor also focuses on international business, international economics and other global courses, but emphasizes language training to a lesser extent.

The minor in global commerce is designed to prepare the student for being an international manager, or for running a domestic business in a globalized world.  Students also gain insights into social and global problems.  Coursework prepares students for entry-level positions in many business and government organizations and is excellent preparation for graduate study in business, government, or law.
