International Business Certificate

As you meet with your advisor about registration, ask about the International Business Certificate (IBC). Combine your curiosity about world cultures with coursework in international business. The IBC adds an international dimension to your degree with globally focused coursework, plus study abroad and language study options. It is a great way to use your non-business elective hours and select globally focused general education/business courses for your major.

The certificate includes 4 areas of study:

  • International Business
  • International Relations
  • Study Abroad and/or World Language
  • Area Studies based on where you study abroad or which language you study

Declare the IBC
You can declare the IBC by logging into MyUI and navigating to Student Information > Advising > Programs of Study and Advisors.

  • Pull a “What-If” degree audit on MyUI for the IBC
  • Ask your academic advisor
