International Business Dual-Degree

Creating global citizens with multinational business experience

The trend towards global markets is continuously on the rise. In order to be prepared for the challenges this brings, it’s vital for business professionals to have a vast knowledge of modern management concepts as well as an understanding of economic, cultural and social environments at the international level.

Offered by the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business and the top-ranked ESB Business School at Reutlingen University in Germany and the NEOMA Business School in Reims, France, the business dual-degree program offers an unusual opportunity for extended study and work in two cultures while exposing students to international business, giving them a competitive edge in the global marketplace.

Students participating in the program will be fluent in English and either German or French and will learn how to be successful in a foreign business environment while gaining the knowledge, skills and abilities mastered by traditional business students.

A unique approach

Elon students participating in the dual-degree program will spend their first two years on campus and their last two years in Germany or France, including a semester-long, full-time internship. They will complete all the graduation requirements for both Elon and either ESB Business School or NEOMA Business School and be awarded a B.S.B.A. in International Business from Elon and a B.Sc. in International Management from ESB or NEOMA.

European students will spend their first two years on their campus and their last two years in the United States, including a semester-long internship. They will complete all the graduation requirements for both universities and graduate with a B.S.B.A from Elon and a bachelor's degree from their home institution.
