International Studies

International Studies

Expand your degree with international studies. A minor or certificate in international business will open a new world of possibilities.

As the world expands, employers need business professionals with the ability to operate in multi-lingual and diverse cultural environments. The international minor or certificate will give you the communication skills and cultural knowledge needed to understand the global environment in which business operates.

UNIBusiness is pleased to offer two internationally focused programs to add to your business or non-business degree that will prepare you for global business and expand your opportunities for career growth.

International business is available in several forms at UNI, including a minor and a certification for all UNIBusiness and non-business students.

Certification in international business, culture and language is available to UNI College of Business students and to those completing a general business concepts minor. With classes like International Business and Cultural and Political Perspectives, as well as different language classes you can take, certification can be completed with 11-30 credit hours. International business is the perfect addition to any business major.

Individual students and student organizations as a whole consistently win top awards at national and international conferences and competitions.
