Major in International Business

Introduction To The Major

Requirements for the International Business major are: 16 courses (8 core business courses, 1 international internship, 5 foreign language or area studies courses, 2 business electives). Proficiency in at least one modern foreign language (e.g., Spanish, French, German, Chinese, Russian, Japanese), and an approved international experience (usually arranged through Rollins study abroad) are required.  Our program is taught by highly qualified and international faculty (Belarus, France, Ghana, Israel, UK, Switzerland, U.S.A) who have lived, worked and/or taught abroad.
