PROFESSOR LINDA KLEBE TREVINO, Chair of the Department of Management and Organization

This major recognizes that business is becoming increasingly international in scope. Many major corporations routinely conduct business worldwide, and the managers of these firms are drawn from many countries. Therefore, it is essential that students gain both an appreciation and understanding of how business is conducted in other countries. This major contains basic courses in organizational behavior, interpersonal relations, human resource management, etc. In addition, students may take courses that focus on the political, economic, and cultural conditions in selected areas of the world.

For the B.S. degree in Management and International Business, a minimum of 145 credits is required (at least 15 credits must be taken at the 400 level).
