Students may design an interdisciplinary concentration of courses related to their individual goals and interests. This concentration must include twelve credits of upper division courses approved by a faculty advisor.
The international business concentration is designed for students who want to prepare themselves to meet the challenges associated with globalization. This concentration must be taken in tandem with another major or concentration in accounting, economics, finance, human resource management, marketing, or operations and supply chain management. Students must complete the international course for the functional area of their primary concentration, if offered. This primary concentration international course can be used to fulfill the requirement for either, but not both, the primary concentration or the international business concentration.

Students with a concentration in international business may not double-count any of the above courses to satisfy the integrative, international, experiential elective (3 credits) in the business administration major. Students in this concentration may count one three credit foreign language course to satisfy the integrative, international, or experiential three credit requirement. A course in a student’s native language does not fulfill this requirement.
