It’s a big world out there! The international business major in the Brennan School of Business enables you to think globally, communicate effectively across cultures, and prepare for leadership in today’s fast-paced, multinational business environment.

In small classes, get the big picture

You’ll work side-by-side with an outstanding faculty that includes Fulbright scholars, successful authors and top-level corporate leaders. You’ll take a deep dive into business fundamentals, and prepare to work internationally or domestically for global firms in a wide range of fields, including accounting, finance, marketing and management. You’ll be ready to help enterprises of all kinds to flourish in the global economy. Brennan offers two majors in international business: the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree and the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. The latter is for students interested in interdisciplinary study or a double major.

“I chose Dominican because in part because it offers great options for study abroad. My time in Strasbourg, France, really gave me an understanding of marketing from a global perspective. I visited the European Parliament and got to see how businesses in Europe prosper. I also really improved my French!”

From your first to your last day on campus (and even after you graduate), you’ll have full access to academic and career advising that is thoughtful, effective and personalized to you.
