The interdisciplinary minor in International Business and Global Studies is available to business students only. However, this minor is not available to International Business majors in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree. It provides the opportunity for students to focus on the interdependent global environment in which business is conducted. The rapid global changes affecting the business world can best be understood through a cross-disciplinary approach involving the study of international business and economics as well as modern languages and selected courses from the liberal arts curriculum.
A total of 23 credit hours is required to complete the minor. However, the maximum hours can be reduced in this minor by applying up to a two-course overlap with other requirements within general education, a major, or a minor. In addition, students who complete the International Study Abroad Track within the International Elective Track will have the requirements reduced by six credit hours by studying abroad. In any case, there may not be more than a total of a two course overlap in this minor with other requirements, whether within general education or within a major or minor.
