The international business major provides preparation for a career in all fields of business management across cultures and international borders. All students selecting the international business major are strongly urged to participate in the study abroad programs offered through Dominican University.
Course work completed during a student’s study abroad program may be substituted for the major courses, if approved by the international business advisor.
Students who major in International Business will earn the Bachelor of Arts degree.
Students who wish to complete an academic major must be admitted to the Brennan School of Business, but all students are welcome to enroll in accounting, business, international business, and economics courses on an elective basis or to complete an academic minor. However, students are limited to taking a maximum of eight Brennan School of Business courses (in the disciplines of accounting, business administration, and/or economics) without declaring a major within the Brennan School.
This program provides opportunities for the well-prepared student to work in the area of international business. An internship is done as required course work or as independent study. The experience of on-the-job training gives the student a realistic view of the major field and often widens the horizon of job choice.
