The Earl N. Phillips School of Business offers two options in international business:
- Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) Degree in International Business
- Minor in Global Commerce
The International Business major emphasizes international business, international economics and other global courses, combined with in-depth language study in either Chinese, French, Italian, 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.
