International Business Program Description
The Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in International Business is being developed to create a discreet major that fits within the much larger context of curricular renewal at Loyola.&nbsp; Loyola University Maryland seeks to establish these programs as standalone undergraduate majors. These proposals are the result of university-wide curricular review and renewal. <br> <br>The BBA degree in International Business applies the tools of economics to the study of business problems. BBA degree majors are required to take a set of business foundation courses in addition to a selection of economics courses that are directly applicable to the analysis of business issues.&nbsp; The IB major provides an opportunity for students to understand the importance of international business to the U.S. economy, to develop analytical skills needed to assess the global environment of business, to learn about cultural differences in conducting business, and to become familiar with the international dimensions of accounting, finance, law, operations, information systems, management, marketing and corporate strategy.
