International Business Administration Minor

Capital College (IBADM)

Contact: Jane Kochanov, jxs21@psu.edu

This minor provides undergraduate students in all business administration majors with further studies in such areas as international accounting, finance, information systems, comparative management, international marketing, or economics. The objective of the minor is to provide students who are interested in careers in international business with an understanding of problems and problem-solving methods that transcend national boundaries. Proficiency in a foreign language and study abroad provide an understanding of the social, political, and cultural context of the global marketplace. Except for Accounting, the minor can be included in the major with no additional courses being required. Professional Accountancy students may have to take 12 additional credits.
