Note: IB Option is not available for the Australia exchange location
Courses taken overseas will involve studies in international finance and economics, international marketing, and international management. Depending on the location, students take 4 or 5 courses throughout the term. Grades earned abroad are calculated into both the OSU and College of Business GPA. Therefore, it's important to do well in classes taken while on the exchange program.
The International Business Option is attached to the Business Administration major.
Australia exchange program
Students going to Australia will not earn the International Business Option but may take courses at UTS to satisfy degree requirements in Pre-Business Core, Pro-School Core and/or Major-specific courses, and even Bac Core requirements. Students earning a Business & Entrepreneurship Minor, if approved to go on this exchange, could potentially take a class or two that will count in the minor.
