BS Four-Year Degree Plan: International Business Administration Track

The international business administration degree at Missouri State can be completed in eight regular semesters. However, a four-year degree plan does not take into account dual credit or transfer credit that you may bring upon admission to the University. Make an appointment with your advisor to discuss schedules and options.

Also note that the international business administration track requires you to complete one semester at an accredited overseas institution.
