The University of Richmond consists of five schools enrolling more than 4,000 students annually. The Robins School of Business offers bachelor's, master's and doctorate-level degrees. These programs include a bachelor's and master's degree in business administration, both of which provide international business concentrations.
All students in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program must complete courses in economics, accounting, organizational management and business information systems. In the international business concentration, students learn about economics in the European Union, Asia, Africa or Latin America, international strategy and the business environment. They must complete two international cultural experiences, with choices from three options: participating in a study abroad program, demonstrating mastery of a foreign language or living abroad for 12 weeks outside of a study abroad experience.
Admission into the Master of Business Administration with an International Business Residency program requires a minimum of two years work experience. Students in the MBA program must complete two residencies: one in Richmond over two weekends before the fall semester and a second, working in a team of students to create a research project to explore a business issue. The second residency includes 7-10 days in a foreign country. The remainder of the curriculum includes courses exploring the issues of law, society and ethics in relation to business, financial management and operations management.
