International Business is a cross-disciplinary program that provides the foundation
of business and how it intersects with culture, diversity and language.
Why international business at OSU?
Through our international business major, students have the opportunity to study abroad
and immerse themselves in a culture and potentially participate in internships, which
can count towards degree completion. A foreign language is required and many students
take advantage of this opportunity to earn a minor in a language of their choice,
which compliments their coursework.
An International Business major provides the skills necessary for students to pursue
career opportunities in:
Import and export development
Foreign currency investment
National security programs
International account management
International trade management

"I knew I wanted to travel; I love travelling. I thought that was an important
way to learn about yourself and about the world. And I knew I couldn't go wrong with
business skills. Those are important things all people could learn."
