International Business

International business is an interdisciplinary major that combines multiple areas of study, including the liberal arts, business, and international culture and practices. Our International Business Major provides you with a well-rounded education and the knowledge and skills you need for success on a global scale.

To be a competitive candidate in the workforce, you must be skilled in business knowledge and operations that extend beyond the borders of the United States. The Coles College of Business helps you learn the practical and up-to-date skills that businesses need to be competitive in a global marketplace.

 In addition to being ready for immediate entry into the workforce, your degree and international experience will prepare you to be a competitive candidate for graduate school admission.
