Note: A minor in a supporting business field or a foreign language is strongly recommended. A minor in most supporting business fields can be accomplished by using the available elective hours. Employment opportunities in International Business are likely to be enhanced with foreign language skills. Students who have high school credits in a foreign language or who have otherwise developed a foreign language proficiency are encouraged to participate in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). Acceptable scores on the CLEP examinations will allow students to earn up to 14 hours of foreign language credits in French, German, or Spanish.
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers. Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.
The BBA in International Business is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:
- Analysis and decision making.
- Data analysis.
- Understanding of international markets.
- Understanding of global issues.
- Quantitative reasoning.
