As business, governmental and nonprofit entities operate in an increasingly global environment, their success demands trained professionals who understand events and cultures outside their own.

Our international business major is designed to equip you with both strong business skills and the ability to work comfortably in more than one corner of the global marketplace. The requirements of the major are designed to allow you to choose an optional concentration in finance or marketing, and some international business majors also declare a second major, such as foreign language or another business area. To ensure success, competency in a second language and thorough exposure to a chosen second culture through study abroad or a one semester international internship are graduation requirements.

"Pursuing this degree allowed me to gain a global perspective not otherwise offered through a more traditional program. Both the unique projects I was involved with and the people I met through them shaped my time at JMU."
