Semester Abroad Requirement
"All International Business majors are required to complete a semester abroad. Students may satisfy the requirement by studying abroad through one of our approved exchange programs. Students must complete 12 units of coursework in the target language. At least two out of the four courses must be upper division business courses. Students must successfully complete all four courses with a passing grade otherwise the study abroad requirement will not have been met. Student must be upper division in the major prior to submitting the application to go abroad. Exceptions may be made in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. Unapproved study abroad programs will not meet the requirement.
As an alternative to studying abroad at an approved exchange program, students may choose to complete an internship abroad in the region and language of emphasis. In order to meet this requirement, students must complete a minimum of 250 hours of work abroad." (2009-20010 General Catalog SDSU, p. 275)
