International business in the 21st century

Learn from professionals who’ve been there

If you hope someday to work for a multinational company, our International Business major is the place to start. You’ll master a language, study abroad at least once and come to understand the value and responsibilities of corporate global citizenship. By the time you graduate, you’ll know how to succeed in business and give back to the countries you serve.

In Their Own Words

“Faculty mentoring really shaped my career. [M]y mentor really pushed me to study abroad. I had a such an amazing experience that I set a goal to work in the European market. I did my master’s degree [at a] top business school in the world [and now work] as an associate director of a Norwegian tall ship school. When she pushed me to go abroad and explore different opportunities, [it] really changed my life completely.”
