The International Business (IB) track in The Jack C. Massey College of Business prepares students for working in the ever-changing global business market and fast-paced, cross-cultural world. The concentration develops future professionals with highly sought after backgrounds and skills, including sound international business principles, practical competency in understanding global business competition, foreign language proficiency and study abroad experience. Career opportunities for International Business graduates abound both domestically and abroad.

In addition to the Business Tool and Core courses, IB students apply the following courses to their degree: three upper-level business courses in a discipline of their choosing; 12 hours of international business electives; 12 hours of 2000 and 3000 level language courses (Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese or Spanish); and also spend one semester or full summer term abroad enrolled in an approved college or university academic program. We currently have partnerships with universities in several countries or can help you find a school in your country of interest!

Our IB faculty have diverse backgrounds and each offer unique perspectives based on their own international and multicultural experiences.

In addition to IB curriculum, Center for Global Citizenship creates unique opportunities for students to engage outside the classroom:

  • Ascend – student organization for inspiring global leaders
  • Global Summit Series
  • Global Executive and Alumni Spotlight
  • Global Town Hall
  • Meet the Author Series

Finally, each Belmont graduate has an opportunity to apply acquired knowledge and skills to a service-learning project in communities across the globe by applying for Lumos Award.

Recipients explore, engage, and immerse themselves in local communities for a minimum of 8 weeks in order to deepen their understanding of an issue, project or idea that impassions them.
