Bloomsburg University’s international business program is uniquely designed with a qualitative liberal arts foundation, a business core, an interdisciplinary IB core including a short-term faculty-led study abroad opportunity, and a functional specialization that provides you with functional skills in addition to the required business core and IB major knowledge, which increases your job marketability after graduation.
Why study international business?
Pursuing international business will increase your understanding of global markets and various regions of the world, thus enhancing your marketability in the business profession. As an international business major, you'll have greater insights into the global economic and business climates. Adding a global education component, such as study abroad, will only be more beneficial for your efforts to potentially work anywhere across the globe.
Courses and Curriculum
The international business major is unique, because the program provides you both functional expertise that increases your marketability immediately following graduation and liberal arts and international business expertise that will enable you to more rapidly adapt to the growing complexities of managing organizations in an international setting.
