International Business Major
Undergraduate business students at Temple’s Fox School may earn a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree with a major in international business (IB). All IB majors complete four semesters of a foreign language as well as studies in a specific business discipline. Through specialized courses in international economics, finance and general and strategic management, they develop an understanding of the functional areas of international businesses and prepare for positions in multinational firms or international public institutions.
Joint BBA Programs
The Fox School offers joint BBA programs in conjunction with the Centre d’Etudes Franco-Americain de Management (CEFAM) and the American Business School (ABS), both located in France. CEFAM and ABS students can complete their senior year and earn their BBA degree at Temple University. The partnership between The Fox School and CEFAM began in 1986, and its success led to the establishment of a similar relationship with ABS in 1997. Currently, over 200 CEFAM and ABS students hold a Temple BBA degree. Many Temple/CEFAM and Temple/ABS alumni remain in the U.S. to work or attend graduate school. Graduates have an excellent track record of admission to high-quality MBA programs and pursue successful careers throughout the U.S., Europe and Asia.
In addition, we have recently introduced the International (American) Bachelors Degree Program presented jointly by the Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research, Mumbai, INDIA and The Fox School.
International Business Association
The International Business Association (IBA) at The Fox School is an undergraduate and graduate student professional organization that promotes and advances the study of international business. Working closely with The Fox School’s Center for Student Professional Development, IBA provides opportunities for students to develop leadership and communication skills; obtain top-notch internships, co-ops and permanent job placement; develop their own international professional and social network; and interact with students from around the world. In addition, IBA sponsors mentoring programs, guest speakers and field trips to the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and the New York Stock Exchange.
