The undergraduate Certificate in International Business requires a minimum of 29 s.h. and satisfaction of the certificate's world language or study abroad requirement (total credit depends on a student's choice of world language or study abroad experience). In addition to a world language or study abroad, the program includes study of international business and economics, international relations and institutions, and the contemporary art, literature, culture, and/or politics of one of several geographical regions (Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East/Africa, or Russia/Eastern Europe). The range of courses permits students to tailor areas of specialization suited to their individual interests and to complement majors in business and in liberal arts and sciences.

The certificate program is open to current University of Iowa undergraduate students and to all individuals who are not enrolled in a UI graduate or professional degree program. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in work for the certificate.

Students should declare their intention to earn the certificate as early as possible, talk with an advisor about certificate requirements, and submit an individual plan of study. Tippie College of Business students should talk with the advising staff at the college's Undergraduate Program Office; College of Liberal Arts and Sciences students should talk with a Certificate in International Business advisor at the Academic Advising Center. Individuals who hold a bachelor's degree from another institution should contact the University's Office of Admissions.

A minimum of 20 s.h. of certificate course work (other than language courses) must be completed at the University of Iowa or in approved study abroad programs. Students who plan to count study abroad credit toward the certificate should consult a Certificate in International Business advisor before leaving campus.

Certificate courses may not be taken pass/nonpass. A course may not be used to satisfy more than one certificate requirement.

The Certificate in International Business requires the following course work.
