Major and Requirements

The below requirements apply to students who have matriculated before June 2015. Please see new requirements for students matriculating on or after June 2015.

International Business Major

Managers must be prepared to engage in heightened international competition. They have to be able to negotiate and manage organizations in different cultural settings. They must know how to market their products in different countries. It is no longer sufficient for managers to address international issues as special topics. Rather, international business requires discipline-based frameworks that can adapt to changing markets and be applied by managers of companies based in any country. The Kellogg School's International Business major provides students with thorough training in a wide range of international fields of study, including management strategy, finance, accounting, marketing, and management of organizations.

The major is positioned to be of value both to U.S. and international students. Students completing the international business major will obtain valuable skills that can be applied in employment in international business management and international consulting.
