The International Business major provides students at Lake Superior State University the highest level of exposure to international business topics and coursework
to work or operate their own business in a global environment.
Students majoring in international business take eight major concentration courses in international business, courses in a target language, regional focus and an international experience. Students participate in an approved international experience, which involves study abroad, work experience, or internships.
In addition, students majoring in International Business
are strongly encouraged to choose a minor in areas
complementary to international business such as management, marketing, and economics.
A minor in International Business can become a powerful
complement to the specialized business majors
like accounting, finance/economics, management,
and marketing. The minor consists of six courses in
three operational functions of a company on the different
aspects of international business. The synergies
between the IB program and some of the specialized
courses in your major, as well as the elective courses
permit students to double count courses to complete a minor in international business.
