New international business degree option at Drury enhances global acumen

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Sept. 11, 2017 — The Breech School of Business has launched an immersive and adaptable undergraduate degree option in international business this fall.

The international business major provides students with the ability to develop multicultural competences, preparing them to work with people in different parts of the world in a dynamic and global business environment. It is designed to be obtained in conjunction with a specialized business major such as accounting, economics, finance, management, or marketing. The degree option requires 12 credit hours of language courses and requires students to complete either a semester abroad or internship abroad to complement their studies.

Drury’s study abroad program offers both short- and long-term international study opportunities. Breech students have previously studied in places such as Cairo, Egypt; Granada, Spain; Ljubljana, Slovenia; and Aegina, Greece.

“The international business Major is designed to be interdisciplinary in nature,” says Dr. Jin Wang, dean of the Breech School of Business. “The time with and exposure to foreign culture and business practices will be very helpful to students who want to be more engaged in the dynamic global economy. Most industries have growing international interactions and these students should be well poised to take advantage of those opportunities.”
