International Business Major Curriculum

Champlain College's Robert P. Stiller School of Business spends a lot of time working with employers and internship sites to determine the exact skills, knowledge, and characteristics they are seeking in job candidates.

Employers look to hire graduates who have developed expertise in a specific area of business; have strong critical thinking, communication, and teamwork skills; and possess the ability to strategize and lead across the whole business enterprise or organization.

Faculty members in the Stiller School incorporate this employer input with their academic and professional expertise to provide an integrated, cutting-edge education that prepares you exceptionally well as a globally minded professional.

The International Business curriculum is designed to support at least one semester studying abroad. Your faculty advisor will work with you to explore options and ensure you meet the requirements for your major.
