International Business Emphasis

Economies are intertwined as never before, and in most industrial sectors competition is increasingly global. There are a number of new and dynamic events and processes that influence the world's economic, cultural, and political arenas. It is essential that managers understand the implications of these changes. They affect managers in at least three ways. First, firms that see themselves as primarily domestic companies are facing increased competition from foreign firms in their domestic market. Secondly, foreign markets and resources are becoming increasingly important in terms of incremental revenue, profitability, sources of technology, and capital. And third, U.S. worldwide economic influence has diminished in a relative sense, and it has become more important than ever for executives to be aware of international influences.

Focus of Study

The UCCS International Business track addresses the issues of today's business relations and introduces students to the challenges and basic skills required for effective international business management.

Program Requirements

Each candidate for the Bachelor of Science-Business degree in the Professional Program must complete the prescribed courses in an area of emphasis comprising a minimum of 18 - 24 semester hours taken at UCCS in addition to the required courses in the Business degree.

To earn a professional area of emphasis, a grade point average of 2.5 is required for the area of emphasis courses, with no grade below a C-; a 2.5 cumulative GPA is required for all business courses; and a 2.0 GPA is required overall. Students who graduate with an area of emphasis and/or business grade point averages from 2.0 to 2.49 will not earn an area of emphasis. All attempts of emphasis courses will be calculated into a student's GPA.

By completing extra courses, a student can earn a second area of emphasis. To earn a double area of emphasis, a student must fulfill all the requirements for both areas. If there are not at least 15 hours of unique courses in the areas, then the student cannot earn a double area of emphasis.
