This academic program views international business in the broad context of all business transactions devised and carried out across national borders to satisfy the organizational and personal goals of firms and individuals. International business studies incorporate all of the functional business operations of accounting, finance, management, and marketing; as such, it is an integrative field of study within an international framework. Students will integrate issues and trends in the global business environment and apply this insight to decision making.
It is recommended that international students apply one month prior to these dates to allow time for admission and I-20 visa processing. I-20 forms are processed by the Office of International Programs.

All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students.
