International Business Minor

Study business as you travel the world

Students who are majoring in another discipline may choose to take an International Business minor in addition to their primary course of study. Students will take courses in accounting, marketing, economics, and management both on campus and overseas as a part of of the International Business Institute program.

A minor normally consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours, 6 of which must be taken at the 300/400 level. Each academic school or department must approve the student and curriculum to be used in the completion of each minor for the Office of the Registrar to verify at the point of graduation.
