Major in International Business
Sergio Fernández Baena '16
This degree program explores cultural differences in business practices around the world. Knowledge of other cultures facilitates successful transactions, not only in international trade, but also within multicultural teams, which are increasingly prevalent in today's globalized society. Students in this program will also learn about exporting, importing, foreign direct investment, foreign licensing and international services. The International Business academic curriculum is completely integrated into that of the St. Louis Campus in Missouri. In fact, International Business students are encouraged to take advantage of the seamless relationship between the degree programs at each campus by completing a semester abroad (in either Madrid or St. Louis). Students who wish to pursue this business program have two options:
- Complete the entire undergraduate program in Spain with the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business (JCSB) in Missouri as the degree-granting entity.
- Enroll in the International Business degree program at the Madrid Campus and transfer freely between the St. Louis and Madrid campuses over the course of the undergraduate degree program.

Another way for you to enhance your cultural awareness and knowledge of the world as an international-business student is through Study Abroad. Both the Madrid and St. Louis Campuses offer wonderful opportunities for students to spend a semester or a year at institutions around the world!
