The program requires 9 hours of course work with international content that may be
completed through other degree requirements. Three hours must be taken from an approved
list of courses offered by the Moore School of Business which contain international
business or international economics content. The following course options can also
be used to satisfy the 3 credit hours of this requirement: approved course work containing
international business or international economics content, taken at a semester abroad
program; an approved Maymester or summer overseas course containing international
business or international economics content; an approved internship course in international
business wherein a student would obtain discipline-related work experience in a foreign
country; or an approved service-learning component.
Students may choose from one of the following options to complete the remaining 6-hour requirement:
Language: Two language courses at the 200 level or above
Electives: Two approved courses with international content taken either inside or outside the Moore School from the list of available internationally-focused courses.
Minors (non-business) may be selected from a University-wide list of approved minors. The minor is normally a minimum of 18 hours of prescribed courses in one subject area. Minors are recognized on the transcript.
Cognates which consist of 4 related courses in a specific field. The cognate is intended to support the course work in the major. The cognate must consist of twelve (12) hours of courses at the advanced level, outside of but related to the major. Cognates do not earn an additional designation on the transcript.
The number of elective hours required depends upon the number of hours used to fulfill other degree requirements, including the optional minor or cognate. Minimum degree requirements must equal 122 hours. Selecting to pursue a minor or cognate, multiple business majors or the business analytics concentration may be used to reduce the total number of electives hours. No courses of a remedial, developmental, skill-acquiring, or vocational nature may apply as credit toward degrees in the Darla Moore School of Business.
Options to meet this requirement may include:
- Pre-Professional coursework can be applied for students seeking admission to a professional degree program after graduation.
- A maximum of 4 courses towards completion of an accelerated master’s program if not counted elsewhere in the degree.
- Directed Electives: Students may select courses of interest with their advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to take a business section of UNIV 101. All directed coursework electives must be passed with a grade of C or better. Directed coursework may not include coursework in PEDU or MATH/STAT below the Moore School minimum requirements (ex. MATH 111 or STAT 110) or 1 credit performance classes.
