Bachelor of Science in International Business

The study of international business teaches you how to conduct business abroad, whether running or working for a multinational corporation. Through our Christ-centered curriculum, you will acquire the necessary core skills — accounting, finance, management, leadership, ethics, etc. — upon which you will build your understanding of how to apply these principles in a different culture. Gain international experience through an overseas internship. To gain this perspective, you will complete an international internship, gaining experience and an appreciation for the political, social and economic life in another country. You’ll also have the option of completing your internship here in the states and gaining overseas experience through another route, perhaps through a study aboard program. The relationships and experience you gain through your international travel can lay the groundwork for your career abroad or in cross-cultural ministries.

Expand your view of cultural differences in business through the Latin American Studies Program.

Begin your journey by touring beautiful locations such as Madrid, Barcelona, Segovia and Lisbon. Take the classroom outside and enjoy the Iberian Peninsula while appreciating and engaging with the rich culture of Spain and Portugal. While pulling back the layers of culture, gain a deeper understanding of what it means to work alongside people of other cultures and to take your business across borders. After two weeks of touring, jump right into a six-week internship in Madrid, Spain. (Before strategically being placed in their internship by We Find Group, a headhunting agency, students are able to specify their preferences and interests in a placement.) Students will live in apartments in central Madrid and experience what it is like to live and work in another country.
