"RIT & Saunders College of Business is 64th in the U.S."

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Students in the international business major develop the foundation necessary to understand business as well as political and cultural diversity. Proficiency in a foreign language is an integral part of the major. A co-major is chosen in one of the following areas: accounting, finance, management, management information systems, or marketing. This secondary area of interest provides students with the functional tools needed in their career. International business positions include substantial personal and professional benefits. Overseas assignments typically bring long hours and hard work, yet the reward of upward mobility within the corporate world continues to lure young executives to global assignments. International business students are required to select a minor from one of the business disciplines. Although you may select any minor from the list below, choosing any minor other than business administration may require that you take more than the minimum number of credits (123) to complete all requirements and graduate.

  • Business administration

  • Digital business

  • Finance

  • Management

  • Marketing

Students majoring in International Business learn how to serve customers in international markets and how to introduce local businesses to global markets. Immersion in another nation's culture, values, and business practices is the key to international business success. Students gain an understanding of how people in other countries live and develop business strategies that meet the needs and wants of customers.
