International Business Concentration

Preparing Students for Global Careers

A management concentration prepares you to work with people in a variety of contexts. While other business disciplines focus on tasks for business, management focuses on how to motivate others to accomplish these tasks efficiently and effectively with high quality results. You will learn how to manage projects, work with teams, implement changes, and be an effective leader.


By following the critical path (The sequence of classes which must be taken to earn your degree within four years. A class on the critical path cannot be started until you've taken the prerequisite class. If these classes are delayed, it is more difficult to graduate on time.) through the IBUS concentration, you will be able to finish your degree in a more timely manner.

The RED BLOCKS indicate the courses that should be completed first to graduate on time; however, the curriculum description and layout is not a sequential checklist to be followed in lockstep. There are many opportunities to optimize the course flow in consultation with your faculty advisor or the department manager.
