Accounting and International Business Co-Major
Terry College of Business
A growing number of companies transact a significant portion of their business accounting through international channels. Even those corporations conducting business strictly in the U.S. have to compete with foreign imports and for foreign labor. As a result, major corporations that take advantage of international opportunities have a competitive edge.
The University of Georgia has designed its Accounting and International Business co-major to assist students in developing an in-depth understanding of the international accounting and business arena. Students take courses in the international business environment, accounting, economics, finance, information systems, legal transactions, strategic management, international marketing, and others. Students must also satisfy an international immersion requirement such as a study abroad program, internship, or additional foreign languages. (Refer to the Pre-Business major for information on applying.)
Career opportunities upon graduation include account executives, analysts, consultants, financial specialists, international marketing specialists, foreign exchange operations analysts, business managers, project coordinators, and many others.
