International Business (IB) is the name three related programs offered by the E. Philip Saunders College of Business: a major (code: BBUT) and a minor (code: BIBM) for undergraduate students, and a concentration for the Masters of Business Administration program for graduate students.. Like all Saunders programs, International Business is offered directly by the college and supported by the college's instructional faculty and student services rather than by an academic department.

When Ashok Rao was appointed Dean of Saunders in 2007, the Management and International Business department was dismantled. IB courses are now offered by Saunders directly as part of the IB major or minor.
Certification for the major (BBUT) in international business requires successful completion of the following. Note that completion of the major is not sufficient for a degree; a Bachelors of Science degree also requires the General Education core requirements, which are not listed here.

The five co-majors offered are Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Management Information Systems.
As Business, Government & Society is a requirement of the management co-major, students selecting this co-major must also take Legal Environment of Business to satisfy the law and ethics portion of the main program.
The management information systems co-major is the least structured, requiring only that the student select four related courses approved by his or her academic advisor.
