Strategic Management & International Consultancy

An International Business Field of Study for MIB Students

The four fields of study that are the International Business fields for the MIB degree include: International Finance and Banking; Strategic Management and International Consultancy; Marketing; and Public and NGO Management. Students in the MIB program must complete one of these four International Business Fields of Study along with one International Affairs (MALD/PhD) Field of Study. MIB students must complete a minimum of three course credits in a single field to fulfill the International Business Field of Study requirement. Modular courses (1/2 credit courses) must be matched up to make a full credit. Each field has one required course credit and two elective course credits. An asterisk (*) denotes the required course for the field. Through petition to the Committee on Student Academic Programs, MALD students may offer one of the MIB International Business Fields of Study. However, it should be noted that in doing so, they are ineligible to officially offer the International Business Relations Field toward their plan of study. Note: MIB students are not permitted to offer the International Affairs Field of Study, International Business Relations, to satisfy one of their field requirements.
  • The Strategic Management and International Consultancy Field of Study requires the completion of a minimum of three course credits from the list below, including one required class and two elective credits.
  • Of the two electives, at least one-credit must come from
    Group 1.
  • An asterisk (*) denotes required course for the field.
  • Modular (1/2 credit) courses must be matched up to make one-credit.
  • Please refer to the "Key" below for information
    on whether a course is offered this academic year,
    and review the linked course description for the semester timing.
  • As a reminder, please note:
    • A course may be counted for credit in only one Field of Study.
    • In those cases where a course is listed in more than one Field of Study, the student may choose the Field of Study in which it is to be credited.
    • Courses, however, may be used to meet both Divisional Breadth requirements and Field of Study requirements simultaneously.
