International Business Major​

Study—and experience—global business.

Imagine learning about Japan's infrastructure while eating sashimi in Tokyo. Or studying foreign trade with China before doing karaoke in Shanghai. International business experience is exciting—and it is growing in demand. In the international business major at the Knauss School of Business at the Unviersity of San Diego, you will study a globally diverse curriculum on campus and abroad while developing an international mindset.

Through experiential learning opportunities, you will execute real-world projects for local companies that conduct business internationally. And to deepen your cultural understanding, you can choose from a variety of international business major electives, including pre-approved regional classes outside of the Knauss School of Business.

From Austria to Uruguay, you can live and study in more than 30 different countries while earning USD credit as you take advantage of internships, international consulting projects and student teaching opportunities. By seeing new parts of the world, you will gain a deeper appreciation for other people and cultures—and a deeper understanding of how you can effect change on a global scale.
