Undergraduate Program of Study

  • Certificate in International Business

The Tippie College of Business and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offer the undergraduate Certificate in International Business. The program is designed for students who intend to pursue careers in international business as well as those interested in gaining a better understanding of the global economy and a broader awareness of the political, historical, and social environment in which international business operates.


The Certificate in International Business requires 29 s.h. and satisfaction of the certificate's language requirement (total credit depends on which language the student decides to study). The program includes study of international business and economics, international relations and institutions, a language, and the contemporary art, literature, culture, and/or politics of the geographical region in which the language is spoken. The range of courses permits students to tailor areas of specialization suited to their individual interests and to complement majors in business and in liberal arts and sciences.

The certificate program is open to current University of Iowa undergraduate students and to all individuals who hold a bachelor's degree and are not enrolled in a graduate or professional degree program. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in work for the certificate. Completion of the certificate is noted on the student's transcript.

Students should declare their intention to earn the certificate as early as possible and talk with an advisor about certificate requirements. They must submit an individual plan of study. Tippie College of Business students should talk with the advising staff at the college's Undergraduate Program Office; College of Liberal Arts and Sciences students should talk with a Certificate in International Business advisor at the Academic Advising Center. Individuals who hold a bachelor's degree from another institution should contact the University's Office of Admissions.

A minimum of 20 s.h. of certificate course work (other than language courses) must be completed at The University of Iowa or in approved study abroad programs. Students who plan to count study abroad credit toward the certificate should consult a Certificate in International Business advisor before leaving campus. University of Iowa Guided Independent Study Courses are accepted toward the certificate.

Certificate courses may not be taken pass/nonpass. A course may not be used to satisfy more than one certificate requirement.

The Certificate in International Business requires the following course work.
