For information on the general requirements for a degree, see Baccalaureate Degree Requirements under the Academic Policies and Information section of this catalog.
Students are required to complete at least 72 credit hours in management courses, including MNGT 2100 Management Theory and Practices, MNGT 3400 Human Resource Management, courses in accounting, law and economics, as well as an overview. This includes WSBT 2000 Career Exploration, WSBT 2300 Personal Branding and WSBT 2700 Career Management Strategies. The required minimum distribution of coursework varies, depending on the emphasis selected by the student.
Transfer students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours of academic work in the
departments of Business and Management at Webster University.
Required courses must be completed at Webster University once the student begins to matriculate at Webster University. Transfer courses taken prior to enrollment at Webster University may be used to substitute for required courses if accepted by the chair.
No more than one course completed with a grade of D may count toward fulfilling the specific requirements of the major.
One from each of the four international areas:
Language chosen and courses are dependent on initial incoming capability and progress. Students would typically focus on only one foreign language. A reasonable capability in a foreign language is required. Students can establish their capability by successfully completing 12 credit hours (at least 6 credit hours of which must be at the 2000-level) or by passing an intermediate level language competency examination. If a student successfully completes a major or minor in a foreign language, they will also have met the language requirement for the international business emphasis.
Students whose native language is not English and who are studying in English will be considered to have achieved their foreign language requirement if they successfully pass an ESL test of their English proficiency. The 12-credit-hour requirement must be completed through other coursework from the curriculum.
A student can substitute another foreign language, subject to the approval of the
chair of the Department of Management, if that student successfully passes written
and oral examinations in that language.
A study residency of at least one term (eight weeks) outside the United States or an international internship/practicum in the United States is strongly recommended. For the study residency, students may attend one of Webster University's international campuses or an approved alternative location. Students unable to study outside the United States can take an international internship (3 to 6 credit hours) with an approved firm or organization in the United States involved in international activities.
