International Management Major, BBA

Campus: NYC

Bachelor of Business Administration

The International Management major prepares students for the global world of business through specialized study in a region of the world. Students are required to concentrate in one of the following regions: Region I Asia (p. 291), Region II Europe (p. 292), or Region III Latin America (p. 292). The choice of region will determine the appropriate international management environments course, as well as the courses to be taken to fulfill the foreign language and culture requirement. International Management majors are also encouraged to participate in a study abroad program or field study course related to their regional focus in order to experience first hand the culture, language, and business practices of their region of interest.

Regional Concentration

Each Regional Concentration requires a total of 15-21 credits, including 6-12 credits in one regional language, 6 credits in the region's culture and history, and a 3-credit international management environments course. These credits are applied toward the University Core and major requirements as indicated in the outline of the degree requirements below. Students are required to demonstrate proficiency at the intermediate level in one language from those approved for their regional concentration. Where appropriate, a second language of the region may be added on an exception basis with the approval of the International Management Program Chair or the Undergraduate Management Program Chair, in consultation with the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures. Students are encouraged to use courses required for their regional concentration to complete a minor in a language or one of the following interdisciplinary areas offered by Dyson College: 

  • East Asian Studies
  • Latin American Studies
  • French Studies
  • Italian Studies

Language Exemption for International Students

International students who completed their secondary education in a country where English was not the language of instruction and are fluent in their native language may choose to fulfill their language requirement by studying a second language associated with their regional concentration. They may also qualify for an exemption of the language requirement if their native language is related to their regional area. Students who qualify for the exemption will be required to take 6 credits in history or culture courses for their regional concentration and will satisfy the 128 credit graduation requirement by taking 6 additional credits in any liberal arts and sciences electives.
