Business Administration Major: International Business and Economics Option (B.S.)

https://paulcollege.unh.edu/node/440

The Option in International Business and Economics offers an interdisciplinary course of study, providing strong business training for students pursuing careers at organizations with an international focus, particularly in multinational corporations, international banks, and government agencies. It achieves this by combining general business training with in-depth knowledge in economics, finance, and management. Students are strongly encouraged to round out their education with either an internship at an international organization or by studying abroad for one semester.

A typical plan of study follows, showing the major-required courses. Students take 16-18 credits per semester. Discovery Program requirements (including the Inquiry requirement in the first two years) and elective courses are taken as well. Students are expected to follow this course plan. In the first three semesters, students cannot take more than two major courses in a single semester. The options have different requirements, which are provided below. For a detailed schedule/plan of study for each option, students should check with the Paul College Undergraduate Programs and Advising Office for specific recommendations.
