Spanish and International Business

This joint degree in Spanish and International Business (FSIB) is a double degree for undergraduates planning to enter a career in international business. The FSIB-joint degree provides students with both practical, on-site work experience and a thorough academic background in international affairs.

Students in the Spanish and International Business program receive two separate but integrated degrees: a Bachelor of Business Administration with a major in management and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish for International Trade. The Spanish for International Trade major trains students in language and culture for business and professional positions.

Students additionally may take examinations leading to certification in business Spanish.

All FSIB-joint-degree students participate in an internship in a business/industrial work environment. The goal is to place qualifying students abroad where they can use their language and business skills in an international professional environment. Students who do not go abroad are placed regionally and work one or two semesters for an employer in a staff support or administrative capacity.

The program is designed so that students can complete the 143-credit program in 10 semesters.
