Edwards International Business Minor 

Program Overview

The International Business Minor (IBM) is the first recognized minor Edwards students can pursue. The minor gives students an opportunity to increase their awareness of the international business environment and better prepare them for a career in global business.

The minor also allows for a deeper immersion into international business environments, policy and development. Students who, in conjunction with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in a different subject, take 18 credit units or more of the course requirements, will receive a minor in International Business.

The minor average in International Business will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the minor program requirements. Students must complete 9 credit units using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement. Students will be required to complete 9 credit units with an international partner institution while on a study abroad term or partaking in a summer program.

Students interested in pursuing the International Business minor should meet with an Advisor in the Edwards School of Business to discuss program requirements and funding opportunities for study abroad.
