Student Standing in Classroom

The International Business Minor

Business has no borders and neither should your degree. Add international business skills to your BBA degree - travel optional!

GLOBAL SKILLS FOR BUSINESS STUDENTS

Designed for BBA students but open to all UT majors, an international business minor allows you to incorporate international business skills into your academic plans without studying or interning abroad. It consists of 15 hours of coursework that a student selects from a variety of international business classes at McCombs, the majority of which are open to all undergraduates. And because an international experience is not required for the minor, it is a flexible addition that works well with any degree plan.
