The International Business (IB) Programs is comprised of multi-disciplinary, complementary programs that expand and enrich the educational offerings across the five departments within the College of Business & Economics at Boise State University. It is the litmus test within the college for how we are adapting to market demand and how we are responding to our globalized business environment. The International Business Programs strives to provide the highest value preparation to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, enabling them to compete successfully in the global economy.
Boise State University’s International Business Majors are students of the world, and they represent a variety of diverse cultures and languages. Over 40% of COBE students who study abroad are International Business Majors. Learn more about where our students go.
