The International Business Program at Sam Houston State University is led by faculty that are recognized for excellence in instruction, research, and service.

The BBA in International Business offers coursework that is grounded in theory, a degree that is versatile, and a wide variety of experiences and cultural exposure.

Coursework

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration in International Business will automatically have a minor in Economics, and there are enough elective hours to earn a minor in most business disciplines without adding additional hours to the program.

A minor in a foreign language is strongly recommended. Students are also offered numerous opportunities to study abroad, for which funding is available.
