The Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree with an International Business concentration, whereby a student gains an understanding of the international aspects of business while concentrating in a functional business area—marketing, finance, management, export/import management, or logistics. A minor in International Business is also offered.
Bachelor of Science in Business Administration: Concentration in International Business
Courses analyze the rapidly changing international environment and the new management problems and tasks that result. A student can begin a career in a functional department of a company, with the opportunity to move into international operations if a need develops. Alternatively, a student may begin working directly in international operations, including the import-export field.
Students studying abroad in California State University International Programs or in an SFSU Exchange Program may develop special international business concentrations with adviser approval before going abroad. Students with specific educational or career objectives may develop special international business concentrations in consultation with an adviser.
All concentration courses must be taken on a letter grade basis. Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.0 in all concentration courses.

Minor in International Business
The Minor programs are designed to provide undergraduates with a focused exposure to a particular area of business practice rather than the broad exposure of the General Business Minor. As such, they can provide professional and technical skills needed for entry into specialized business employment for non-business majors or serve as an alternative to a double major for business majors wishing expertise in a second field.
For more information, see Bulletin: Minor in International Business.
Major Degree Roadmaps
A degree roadmap is a semester-by-semester guide to the course requirements necessary to complete a bachelor’s degree in a designated major. A roadmap is designed to help students select classes that satisfy General Education (GE) requirements, major requirements, other all-university requirements and to graduate in four years. The roadmap cannot replace consultation with an advisor in your major or an advisor in the Undergraduate Advising Center. You should always use your degree roadmap in conjunction with the Bulletin and your DARS report, ASE (if applicable), and transcript to select classes for an upcoming semester.
