International Business Degrees: The Quick Lowdown

Default Image for AIU Blog Articles

International business degree programs can be a good fit for students with an inclination to study business and a desire to learn about other cultures. An international business degree or specialization typically begins in the same fashion as a traditional business degree, focusing on foundational courses such as basic business, marketing, finance and human resources. Once the foundation is set, international business students may start courses covering foreign markets, intercultural management, international trade and more. International business students are also encouraged to study other languages, especially if they know where they’d like to end up. Popular secondary languages these days for business students are Arabic, Chinese, Spanish and Japanese.

There’s good news for international business majors: we’re living in the age of the global economy, so international business skills are timely and increasingly important.

AIU offers both a bachelor's and master's degree in business administration with a specialization in international business. This program not only offers many specialized courses in the field of international business, but is also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). ACBSP accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within these programs of the School of Business at American InterContinental University meet the rigorous educational standards established by ACBSP.
