International Business

The rising importance of international trade, finance and public policy has dramatically changed the way we do business. International Business focuses on the principles and practices of business that crosses national boundaries to operate successfully in the global business environment.

Business gone global

Students, faculty and staff within The College of Business strive to not only network and create change within our Nevada community but also to make connections throughout the world.

The international business major provides an interdisciplinary program of study which combines international and foreign language studies with a business degree. This degree is great for students seeking to work in the international business world, as the program focuses on the principles and practices of businesses that cross national boundaries to operate in the global business environment. Each participant has the opportunity to specialize in a particular region — Asia and the Pacific, Europe or the Americas.
