International Business Majors

Starting August 2015, all incoming first year and transfer students who are International Business majors will be required to participate in a study abroad program for at least one semester (minimum of ten consecutive weeks). Students may study abroad as soon as their second semester in their Sophomore year.

Students may choose to study at the UIW European Study Center in Heidelberg, Germany and/or one of our many sister schools located in over 40 countries.
