International Bachelor of Business Administration



Memorial’s international bachelor of business administration (iBBA) is one of only three such programs in Canada. Students enrolled in this 120-credit hour (40-course) degree complement their business knowledge with a global perspective by focusing on the development of cross-cultural skills relevant to a specific global region (e.g. Asia-Pacific, Europe or Latin America).

Our iBBA produces business professionals who are capable of performing successfully across international borders and within diverse regulatory and cultural environments.

The iBBA program contains four key components:

  • Core instruction in fundamental business skills.
  • International business courses dealing with various types of international business activity (e.g. finance politics, law, and economics).
  • Non-business cross-cultural skills that provide both a global and regional (e.g. Asia-Pacifc, Europe or Latin American) perspective. Typically includes study of a foreign language.
  • A mandatory semester of overseas study, spent in the student’s chosen region of interest. A range of study locations are available in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
