Management Information Systems and International Business Co-Major

Terry College of Business



A growing number of companies transact a significant portion of their business 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.

UGA has designed its Management Information Systems and International Business co-major to assist students in developing an in-depth understanding of the international MIS and business arena.  Students take courses in the international business environment, economics, data management, systems analysis and design, 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.)

Graduates become MIS specialists in a given functional area, such as production or finance, and serve as the liaison between MIS and that functional area.  Employment opportunities are available as international IT and foreign exchange business consultants, business process analysts, data analysts, app developers, risk and security specialists, hardware/software vendors, and many others.
