Chinese International Business Program (IBP) The Chinese International Business Program meets the needs of the rapidly evolving global workplace. It is part of the International Business Program designed to prepare students for international careers. It provides the opportunity to earn simultaneous degrees; a BS in Business Administration with a major in one of the seven business disciplines and a double minor in Chinese language and Asian studies (BA in Chinese). IBP students study language and culture each semester along with their business curriculum. In the fourth or fifth year of the five-year program, they then go to China as interns with participant firms in China and also as exchange students with one of our partner universities. The rapid expansion of global business will ensure that IBP graduates will be in very high demand. The program offers a thorough grounding in one of the College of Business Administration majors: Accounting, Finance, General Business, Global Business, Entrepreneurship Management, Marketing, and Supply Chain Management. The addition of a second degree in a language and experience in the overseas marketplace will make our graduates front-runners in the development of the new global economy.
