International Business Major

Bachelor of Business Administration degree

Department of Management

As the economy has shifted from a domestic to a globally competitive marketplace, there continues to be a growing demand for business professionals who can function effectively in the international environment. International business involves business transactions between two or more nations.

The International Business program at Wichita State University is a multidisciplinary program. You will take classes from various departments in the Barton School of Business as well as courses in political science, language and culture. Part of your culture study requires you to participate in a study abroad experience in one of the three areas: Asia Pacific, Europe or Latin America. You will also complete a minor in one or two specific business disciplines.

When you graduate from this program, you might work in multinational corporations, joint venture operations, trading companies, import-export firms, banks or a federal government.
