The Department of International Business Administration offers a BA in International Business Administration, which addresses all the functional areas of business within an international context.

The major emphasizes both discipline-based knowledge—an understanding of basic business disciplines with an ability to integrate the concepts, models and techniques associated with business—as well as problem solving, IT, leadership, and communication skills.
