William Swinton, Major Coordinator (swinton@tuj.temple.edu)

As of Fall 2009, TUJ offers a new degree program, the Bachelor of Science in International Business Studies (BSIBS). The main focus of this new major is to provide students with the business knowledge necessary to work in a multilingual/multi-cultural environment. To achieve this, TUJ has developed a curriculum that not only includes the required language components and technical subjects such as accounting and marketing, but also a range of electives that offer a wider international perspective.
