The concentration in International Business (IB) is designed to prepare students for today’s global business environment. IB as an interdisciplinary program builds capacity around key challenges and opportunities confronting all global businesses, including managing across borders, fostering innovation and entrepreneurship, and developing effective global strategies. In addition students may select an area of specialization, either a business functional area, an industry area, a geographic area of study, or language studies. Study abroad is required with one of three options: 1) a short-term faculty-led program; 2) a semester of study at a foreign university approved by CSU; or 3) an internship through AIESEC or other international internship program. The Director of the School of Global Innovation and Leadership can waive this requirement (e.g., international students need not study abroad). Study abroad courses that are regarded as equivalent can be substituted for IB program course requirements. This interdisciplinary approach provides a foundation for starting an international career. Graduates work in a variety of international areas and industries such as import/export, global operations, marketing, finance, hospitality and tourism, consulting, and project management, in both the private sector as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations.
