International Business Degree at UIW

Front FlagsAt a private university nestled in the heart of the second largest city in Texas, San Antonio, the H-E-B School of Business and Administration (HEBSBA) offers a unique atmosphere where regional charm meets a cosmopolitan culture. Students can expect a practical education that emphasizes a global reach with respect to international and cultural understanding. The HEBSBA offers high-quality undergraduate programs steeped in the UIW traditions of faith, service, innovation, truth, and education.

Ethical considerations in business today are critical for success. Businesses can leverage their economic power to insure socially responsible behavior in the global marketplace. International Business courses are designed to provide a broad analysis of business opportunities abroad, as well as political climates, trade barriers, government incentives, and trade practices. The curriculum emphasizes the changing world of global business.

The international business concentration is designed to prepare students with the skills necessary for international trade positions in business, governmental or other organizations involved in global trade.

International business students, other than international students who attend UIW on a student visa, must engage in a meaningful academic international experience outside the U.S as a condition of graduation. Study Abroad, study at a UIW international campus, short course-based/faculty-led programs integrated into a course for which the student is registered, and approved international internships may qualify. Other options for meeting the requirement may be proposed by the student in the semester preceding the experience, and will be considered prior to the experience on a case-by-case basis by the student's adviser.

Networking with the local business community is possible through these student organizations, by attending the Mexican American Business Institute (MABI), the Free Trade Alliance, World Affairs Council, and Chamber of Commerce events, key supporters of the HEBSBA Business Plan Competition.
