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's growing in demand. At USD, you will study here on campus and abroad as you build your global mindset.

Through experiential learning, you will have the opportunity to do real projects for local companies that have an international perspective. And to deepen your knowledge of other cultures, you can pick from a variety of international business major electives—including pre-approved regional classes outside of the School of Business, like History of Brazil or Issues in Modern Africa.

From Austria to Uruguay, you can live and study in more than 30 different countries while earning USD credit—and participating in internships, practicums and even student teaching. By seeing the world, you will have a deeper appreciation for others—and a better understanding of how you can change it.
