We are now accepting applications year-round to begin upper division International Business classes next fall quarter. We expect to have a full cohort by July, so apply early — please see more information under Admissions.
The International Business Bachelor of Applied Science (IB B.A.S.) program prepares students for a career in a wide range of business and international business fields. It is a multi-disciplinary curriculum, combining business, accounting, marketing, operations, and project management courses. Our focused curriculum ensures students are prepared for career opportunities upon graduation.
Graduates of this program move into careers in logistics, operations, purchasing, import/export, marketing, human resources, banking and finance, and many other business professions.
What makes B.A.S. degrees different from B.A. or B.S. degrees?
B.A.S. degrees focus on providing hands-on experiences and incorporating job-related skills into the classroom, whereas B.A. or B.S. degrees may have a more theoretical focus. Our International Business B.A.S. (IB B.A.S.) degree focuses on group projects in almost every class. The IB B.A.S. degree also works with industry partners to bring real projects into the classroom and frequently incorporates local industry leaders as guest speakers.
