Business Administration BS - International Business Concentration - Academic Experience

(HEGIS: 05.06 BUSINESS MGT & ADMINISTR, CIP: 52.0201 Business Administration and Management, General)

Experiential Learning

Each year, hundreds of School of Management students participate in internship and experiential learning opportunities. The Career Resource Center provides skill-building resources for students, including one-on-one advisement, resume and cover letter review, practice interviews and more. Our exclusive recruitment system, BizLink, is home to internship postings representing concentration areas within the School of Management. Every posting is pre-screened to ensure they are related to the curriculum and meaningful in nature. Students are also encouraged to participate in the Career Passport Program for additional engagement with employers and alumni. These programs, such as Case Competitions, the Management Volunteer Program and various School of Management clubs provide students with comprehensive and coordinated opportunities for career development, emphasizing interpersonal and social skills required for success in business. These types of experiences are often sought after by employers in the recruitment process and are expected content on student resumes.

Study Abroad

In an evolving global economy, there is no question that our best prepared students will bring an international perspective with them when they enter the job market. Not only will the experience provide valuable insight from a career perspective, but study abroad is a personally transformative experience. Whether you choose to participate in our School of Management faculty led study trips or from the vast menu of options through the UB Study Abroad Program, you are sure to find study abroad a life-changing experience.
