Department Website

Students who graduate with an international management minor will have an understanding of the complexities of doing business in a globally integrated marketplace and the impact of political, economic, cultural factors that underlie global decision making. Additionally, students will be able to identify international opportunities, and the factors that impact success of global business endeavors. The minor requires a minimum of four courses for business students, and five courses for students from all other majors. Students will discover strategies organizations employ when they operate worldwide and learn about the organizational behavior of companies from different parts of the world.

This minor is particularly relevant for students who are interested in working in globally integrated industries like automotive, defense, and technology, and is complimentary for a diverse range of majors, including engineering and computer science, international relations, and most liberal arts majors.

Special offerings for each semester may be found in the Schedule of Classes.
