PROFESSOR JERRY C. OLSON, in charge
This major recognizes that the marketing function in modern business is international in scope. Many major corporations conduct business around the world. It is essential that marketing students appreciate the differences between countries and cultures and understand how successful marketing programs respond to these global dimensions of the international market place. This major contains basic courses in business administration, marketing, and international business. Students are encouraged to take courses that focus on cultural, economic, and political conditions in the world.
For the B.S. degree in Marketing and International Business, a minimum of 145 credits is required (at least 15 credits must be taken at the 400 level).
