I was active in ECLIPSE, an AmeriCorps program that focuses on early childhood literacy. I also studied abroad in Australia and had an internship in Argentina through AIESEC, where I was a member of the executive board.

Prepared for success

We take your success personally. Our mission, "We prepare you for success" means we will partner with you to help you achieve an education that fits your own definition of success. You will be in demand: As a graduate of our college, you will have the knowledge and skills you need for success now and in the future. 100% of our 2016-17 international business graduates report they were employed or continuing their education (Source: First Destination Report, UW-Eau Claire Class of 2016-17).  This percentage is higher among students who have a double major and who are proficient in multiple languages. 

We prepare students for success through a curriculum that includes a strong liberal education core and a broad background of courses in all the areas of business. We also help students develop communication, teamwork and problem solving skills, which are highly valued by organizations seeking business graduates.  

The International Business major is an interdisciplinary program. The major includes an international experience, such as the completion of an approved business course at a study abroad site or the completion of an international internship in the United States or abroad. International Business students are strongly encouraged to consider a double major in a functional business area such as management, marketing, information systems, accounting or finance.
