International Management Minor


Return to: Programs of Study

For the Business minor, the International Management minor rounds out their strong comprehensive Business curriculum by adding an in-depth international exposure that combines both cultural and practical experience. The International Management minor deepens the Business degree major’s understanding of how organizations function in an intensely integrated global environment while broadening the cultural understanding via foreign language, coursework involving internationalrelations or economic geography, and the opportunity to study abroad. In addition toBusiness Department coursework, International Management minors will be required to satisfy a language competency and complete either a study abroad experience or international coursework.

Students must attain a 2.0 or higher in each course that serves as a prerequisite to asubsequent Businesscourse. (Refer to the course description section of this catalog forspecific prerequisites.) Failure to attain a 2.0 in prerequisite courses may lengthen thetime to graduation or preclude a student from completing this minor.

The course selected must be related to the geographic area in which the language from the student’s language competency coursework is the primary language.

Language Competency Requirement Explanation


All International Business and International Management minors must demonstrate a language competency in English and at least one other language. Language competency may be fulfilled by 1) successful completion of at least two successive college-level courses in a foreign language (advanced placement credits are acceptable for this competency); 2) residency in another country that resulted in language competency; or 3) demonstrated competency from another source, e.g., the language was spoken and written at home to the level that the student is competent. Verification of language competency other than successful completion of two successive college-level courses or advanced placement must be obtained from the English and Humanities Department’s Language Coordinator. Verification of language competency by the English and Humanities Department can only be granted for languages taught at York College. Competency in English, for those students not having English as their primary language, will be assumed upon successful completion of WRT 102 , WRT 202 , and CM 104  in the Common Core Requirements. Demonstration of language competency, English or foreign, does not exempt students from ADR V requirements. It is strongly recommended that students demonstrating language competency take either advanced language courses or fulfill the ADR V requirement by taking an additional language.

Study Abroad Experience or International Regional Coursework Requirement Explanation


All students minoring in International Business or International Management must either complete a semester abroad or fulfill three credits of international coursework. Students opting to study abroad must complete and transfer back at least three credits to satisfy this requirement. Study abroad is recommended in the latter half of the student’s sophomore or junior year. The student may attend any foreign college or university approved by the study abroad advisor. A grade of 2.0 or better must be obtained in any course taken abroad in order for credit to transfer back to York College. U.S.-born students attempting either of these minors must have a valid passport by the start of their sophomore year with an expiration date extending beyond the planned study abroad semester. International students must make certain they have all travel documentation required to complete the study abroad requirement. The study abroad option is preferred for both minors.
