International Business Administration

What Can I Do With An International Business Major?

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” — Walt Disney

If you enjoy travel and learning about other cultures, this could be a great choice for you. The majority of jobs in international business involve sales and marketing. Sales professionals working in defense industries, maritime shipping, construction or oil field equipment can earn very high salaries. Some students also pursue an international business degree as preparation for law school.

Travel isn’t necessarily a requirement; jobs may be available in your local community. You may find a position where you are the liaison between a customer representative of a foreign company and the local customer here in the United States. 

Positions in government

Your degree in international business administration can also prepare you for positions in the federal government working in international trade policy, import compliance, or market research. This is a good choice if you enjoy keeping up with U.S. foreign policy and the socio-economic and political factors of our nation’s key trading partners. The Foreign Service, a branch of the U.S. Department of Commerce, places employees in overseas posts in 67 countries around the world.
