Certificate Program in International Business
The Certificate Program in International Business (CPIB) offers a special opportunity to Bachelor of Science in Business Administration students with a strong interest in the global aspects of business. The CPIB will contribute to a student’s preparation for a career in international business, which often begins with domestic job placements that can lead to international assignments as the professional’s career progresses.
Students pursuing the CPIB will be particularly attractive to employers who value students with international interests, perspective, knowledge, and experience. This program will give our students an advantage in competing for the most attractive internships and full-time positions in highly internationalized firms.
Enrollment is open only to students in the BSBA degree program. The CPIB is designed as an enrichment of the BSBA program, not as a stand-alone program. It builds on the BSBA core curriculum and may be combined with a major in accounting, finance, general management, business information systems, supply chain management, or marketing. It may not be combined with the Pitt Business global management major.
Important note: The CPIB requirements have recently been modified. CBA students who add the CPIB to their academic plan on the PeopleSoft system on or after August 30, 2010 are subject to the requirements described below. Continuing CPIB students (those who added the CPIB to their academic plan on PeopleSoft prior to August 30, 2010) will continue to fulfill the requirements specified in their academic advisement transcript on the PeopleSoft system.
