overview of business minor admissions & requirements:


Please refer to the International Business Minor website for important changes to the application process and requirements.

The International Business Minor is for students earning Undergraduate degrees in the Gies College of Business and is not open to students earning Undergraduate degrees in colleges other than the Gies College. The International Business Minor provides a program of study that exposes students to global business in a manner that complements their existing studies in Accountancy, Finance, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, Operations Management, Supply Chain Management, and Strategic Business Development & Entrepreneurship.

Specifically, the Minor provides students with a clear understanding of the opportunities and challenges involved with international business transactions, as global managers face a diverse set of circumstances when engaging in cross-border business: e.g., enhanced globalization (& de-globalization) forces, cross-national variation in institutions and cultures, increased competition from emerging economies, and altered economic incentives. Thus, the International Business Minor is designed to educate and train future business leaders, decision-makers and strategic thinkers to skillfully manage in the evolving global business environment.

To declare their Minors, Business students must submit their Statement of Intent to Pursue a Campus-Approved Minor (Statements) to 1055 Business Instructional Facility (BIF) at any time.
