International Business


The Career of International Business, as well as other four careers such as Management, Accounting, Economics and Marketing, forms part of the University’s Business School.

The curriculum grid of the Career of International Business has courses:

  • From Liberal Arts. 
  • In common with all the careers of Business School.
  • In common with, at least, two careers of Business School.
  • Exclusively for the Career of International Business.

The School of Liberal Arts includes three courses from the Business School: Basic Math, Business Math (with the adequate level for our careers) and Basic Statistics for Business. Students must take:

  • All mandatory courses of the curriculum grid (black solid line), which total 200 credits. 
  • Elective courses (red dashed line), which total 9 credits.

The total number of credits necessary to complete the career is 209. The total number of credits is distributed in ten levels, each of which correspond to a four-month (sixteen-week) regular academic term. These terms begin in April and August of each year. Additionally, some courses are taught in non-regular eight intensive week-long academic terms that begin in mid-January of each year. These courses are offered to students who want to catch up because they have failed them or who want to advance them. Students who pass all the courses programmed in each level will complete the Career of International Business in ten academic terms (five years).
