The minor in International Business provides an introduction for those students interested in learning more about elements of business unique to international organizations or in pursuing a career in international business. With a strong set of business skills developed through the core undergraduate curriculum and their majors, students in the International Business Minor can further develop their skills in managing and communicating across different cultures, improve their understanding of how specific business disciplines vary in an international setting, and cultivate an appreciation for international monetary issues.
Students must complete five courses for a total of 15 credits. At least eight credits of the minor courses must be unique to the International Business Minor and not applied toward any other major, minor, or concentration. Students must achieve a grade of C or better in each course that is applied to the minor.
For policies governing all minors, see AP.5.3.4 Minors. The School of Business residency requirement for this minor supersedes the university requirement: at least nine credits must be earned at Mason.
