Coursework requirements

The IB co-major and your primary major can be completed in 121 hours with careful planning. Checksheets (see sidebar) will help you stay on track with the degree program requirements.

Foreign language:

Ability to read, write, and converse in a second language sets the IB co-major apart from the crowd. Co-majors normally demonstrate this by studying a second language through the conversation level. Check the UGA Bulletin for lanugages taught to this level (e.g., CHNS 3010, FREN 3010, GRMN 3010, ITAL 3010, JPNS 3010, PORT 3010, SPAN 3010) .

Major courses (6 credits):

  • ECON 4040, International Business Environment (Note: Economics majors take ECON 4550, International Trade, instead).

  • MGMT 5560, International Strategic Management (IB capstone class).

 Major elective (3 credits):

  • Choose one: LEGL 4900 (International Legal Transactions for Business), MARK 4700 (International Marketing), FINA 4810 (International Finance), INTB 4800 (internship requires approval), INTB 5100 (Special Topics in International Business), MIST 5780 (Globalization and IT)
    Note: If your primary major is Marketing, Finance, or Management Information Systems, you must choose an elective outside of your major department.

International Immersion:

  • Choose one: (a) an approved, 3-credit study abroad program, (b) an approved internship in a company doing global business, or (c) two additional courses in the foreign language you are studying beyond the conversation-level.
