The Global Business Minor is an excellent way to prepare yourself for international travel.

Non-business majors have the opportunity to blend two required Business courses and your choice of three multidisciplinary electives that pull from Anthropology, Business, Economics, History, Marketing, Philosophy, and Psychology.

Learn from international and multidisciplinary students as you broaden your global perspectives. You will use country analysis case studies and build knowledge about foreign cultures.
