International Management Major

Bachelor of Business Administration

The International Management major prepares students for the global world of business through specialized study in a region of the world. Students are required to concentrate in one of the following regions: Asia, Europe, or Latin America. The choice of region will determine the appropriate international management environments course, as well as the courses to be taken to fulfill the foreign language and culture requirement. International Management majors are also encouraged to participate in a study abroad program or field study course related to their regional focus in order to experience firsthand the culture, language, and business practices of their region of interest.
