For information, contact the Student Services Office 1022 FSB (513-529-1712).

This curriculum is available to the business student whose career goals require a program that covers the broad area of business with an interdisciplinary focus. Beyond the business core taken by all business majors, this major features an advanced core of classes centered on economic, legal, managerial, and sales aspects of the business transaction. Students complete the major by taking added courses in one of three interdisciplinary areas of business: business legal studies, entrepreneurship, or international business.

This major is appropriate for the student who wishes to postpone specialization, the student who wants to display a strong interest in the international dimensions of business, the pre-law student who wishes to take pre-legal training in business, or the entrepreneur who plans to organize and operate their own business.

Students interested in Interdisciplinary Business Management major will meet with an advisor to discuss the program and officially declare the major.
