The 4+1 program will prepare students to start or accelerate careers related to international business development across a wide variety of sectors. As economies continue to be integrated via trade, investment and advanced technology, an increasing number of companies seek qualified global professionals. They seek culturally intelligent individuals capable of employing data-driven and relationship approaches to growing international sales and global business opportunities. The program is designed to provide graduates with the analytical skills, entrepreneurial perspectives, and cross-cultural competencies needed to successfully engage in sales and business development in a global context. Upon completion of the program, students should be competent in leading efforts – either in established organizations or in their own ventures – to identify, analyze, assess, and pursue international sales and business opportunities for both U.S. and foreign companies.

Specific Requirements

Students must apply and be admitted to the BA/MS 4+1 degree (BMGBD). All students must have a satisfactory score on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) and a minimum overall GPA of 3.2. Students may apply for the program at the end of the junior year with a minimum overall GPA of 3.2 among the completed courses.

Students who choose the 4+1 program option will begin the M.S. part of the program in the final semester of their senior year by taking two graduate courses. Three graduate courses (B A 676 , FIN 654 , and MKTG 769 ) will substitute for three required undergraduate courses (MKTG 376 , FIN 329 , and MGT 405 ). In the 5th year of this option, students will complete the remainder of the M.S. degree requirements.

Students must achieve at least a 3.0 average in the courses numbered 500 and above and specified on their official program for the 30-unit master’s degree. If for any reason a student does not satisfactorily complete the requirements for the Global Business Development, M.S.  degree, they will be awarded the B.A. degree in International Business, upon completion of the requirements for the B.A. degree.
