IB Certificate is designed for non-business students who may more easily take and complete the minor. Required courses increase from one (3 credits) to three (9 credits). Elective requirements decrease from at least four courses (12 credits) to at least two courses (6 credits).
The IB minor is be targeted to CBA majors, while the IB certificate will be targeted to non-CBA majors. The new certificate contains 1 basic business course with no prerequisites (6100: 101 Business Issues in a Connected World) and two general IB courses that non-CBA students can take without needing any other business course. In the spirit of being interdisciplinary, the electives will be primarily from outside of the CBA and include paths with no prerequisites.
