International Business Dual Major


The International Business program prepares students for managing businesses in a global environment. In the world of markets and business, opportunities exist in a global economy. The Campbell School of Business is pleased to provide students with the opportunity to obtain an International Business degree.

Why International Business?
The International Business major was developed because we listened to what our students wanted. We offer a dual major where students major in a traditional business discipline of accounting, finance, management or marketing and then take supplementary coursework in the international arena. The International Business program provides an integrated foundation that focuses on global business practices.

Students can choose course offerings from among these options:

  • International Business
  • Business and Society
  • Economic Development
  • International Economics and Finance
  • Cross-Cultural Management
  • International Marketing

Students can also opt for courses in Government (International Relations), Anthropology, or advanced courses in Spanish, French and German languages.
The International Business emphasis combined with business discipline knowledge offers Berry graduates the chance to easily translate their skills to an international business setting. To survive today, organizations must understand the effects and opportunities presented by globalization. International Business graduates are hired by multi-national corporations, businesses involved in foreign trade (import/export), government and public institutions, international relief and environmental organizations.
Berry’s goal is for our graduates to be ready to forge business relationships in places like Hong Kong, Amsterdam, Bonn, Milan, London or Buenos Aires.

The International Business major is a dual major. Students may pursue the International Business major only if they simultaneously pursue one of the other business degrees offered by the Campbell School: Accounting, Finance, Management or Marketing. A total of 15 additional credit hours specific to International Business are required to fulfill the requirements of the International Business major.
