International business majors may showcase their knowledge of global business practices and sharpen their analytical and critical thinking capabilities through participation in the Northeastern University – Consortium of Undergraduate International Business Education International Business Case Competition (NU-CUIBE IB). The competition involves 16 teams of students developing and presenting a solution for an international business case study in front of a panel of judges representing global businesses.

Consulting Projects

JMU is a partner of the Virginia International Trade Alliance (VITAL), which has as its mission to increase international business opportunities for Virginia companies.  Working with the VITAL program, students in IB 480 – International Business Theory and Policy, a senior-level capstone course, develop export plans for local businesses that have shown an interest in selling their products or services internationally.  We typically work with four such companies each spring semester. 

International Internships

Students can choose to fulfill their study/work abroad requirement by completing an international internship in a country where the primary language spoken is the language chosen by the student to meet the International Business Program requirements.

IBUS Major Jonathan Cedeno '16

“The International Business program gave me the foundation to pursue an international internship. I worked for a farming co-op in Costa Rica to develop a global marketing plan for a new cocoa project. I used many different skills learned through the IB program to contribute to the project. I am very happy that JMU’s IB program prepared me to achieve my goals.”
