Bachelor's Degree With an International Business and Economics Major

To earn your bachelor's degree with a International Business and Economics major, you'll complete:

  • Core liberal arts courses for your bachelor of science or bachelor of arts degree
  • Courses for the International Business and Economics major (below), and
  • Additional electives, as needed, to gain the total number of credits (130) required for your B.A. or B.S.

You may be closer to a St. Kate's degree than you think — find out more about transferring in courses from other colleges or universities to meet core liberal arts or elective requirements.


St. Kate's International Business and Economics major will provide you with an excellent preparation in business principles and economic theory. You'll be prepared for the next step in your business career, or have a solid foundation for graduate school. 

If you're interested in getting a head start on your graduate degree, take up to two graduate-level courses in St. Kate's Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Arts in Organizational Leadership (MAOL) program — while still enrolled as an undergraduate student pursuing your bachelor's.
