Students who pursue a major in International Business will be prepared to be effective in the international environment, with knowledge of the culture, language, business, and political affairs of other countries. Graduates with this major will be prepared to work for a multinational corporation in the United States and abroad or to pursue graduate studies in international business. For information about specific courses offered, please see our Academic Catalogue. 

The Wesleyan international business major will have a combined competency in a modern foreign language (Spanish or French) along with economics, finance, marketing, management, accounting, political science, history, ethics and cultural awareness.

Many Wesleyan graduates enter the workforce with unique qualifications and have combined major and minor programs in ways that separate them from other job-seeking candidates. Anna Deckert '05, for example, graduated from Wesleyan College in 2005 with a double major in International Business and Spanish. She then began pursuing her master’s degree overseas.
