Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Colleges, Departments, and Programs

The International Business Certificate Program offers a unique opportunity for students to gain exposure to international business through a combination of coursework and travel in an overseas setting.

The program is open to College of Business degree students who are interested in international business.

The Certificate consists of 21 credit hours, which must include an overseas experience (see below), and will be awarded with the diploma at graduation, providing that the student has at least a 2.5 GPA in the Certificate Courses.

The overseas experience can be fulfilled in one of the following ways:

  • UMD/CCB sponsored course that has a minimum overseas stay of 2 weeks;
  • A semester abroad at a partner university;
  • A summer session at a partner university;
  • A year abroad at a partner university

During the course of the overseas experience students may take up to 9 credits of course work (or the equivalent) which would fulfill the requirements of the Certificate.
