Bachelor of International Business (Honours) Program Requirements

The Bachelor of International Business (B.I.B.) program is characterized by the requirement that students spend third year in studies abroad.

Students in the B.I.B. program are required to specialize in one of the following languages: French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, or Spanish.

Language Training Component

Students may select French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, or Spanish as their specialization language for study. Applicants to the program should indicate both a first and second choice, as their first choice may be oversubscribed. Students are strongly advised to continue study and use of their selected language independently, in the summers between academic years. Failure to do so may seriously undermine success during the year of study abroad.

Applicants to the program interested in languages other than those listed above should contact the Eric Sprott School of Business Supervisor of Undergraduate Programs to verify if the preferred language option may have become available after the publication of this calendar.

All first year Bachelor of International Business students will be assessed for ability in their selected language by the relevant language unit and placed in the appropriate courses as authorized by the language unit.

Students with some ability in their selected language may be allowed to pursue studies in that language on the understanding that they will effect a significant improvement in their ability.

The language credits must be prespecified by course numbers by the selected Language units. Students are advised not to register in courses before they have been specified.

The Year Abroad

The Study Abroad Requirement of the B.I.B. program is met by the successful completion of a minimum of 4.0 approved credits during the year of study abroad (this includes BUSI 3700), with a minimum of 1.0 credit taught in the chosen language for the program. The B.I.B. student will study at one of Carleton's approved Exchange partner institutions, as a full-time student on Exchange for one academic year.

The third year of study will be spent taking a set of courses at a foreign institution approved by the Eric Sprott School of Business.

In order to be eligible to study abroad in third year, students must be in Good Standing and are required to have successfully completed a minimum of 9.0 credits:

  1. 4.0 credits in the specified Language Core (3.0 credits in the case of Japanese and Mandarin), and
  2. 5.0 credits in Business and Economics from the Major requirements below the 3000-level (6.0 credits in the case of Japanese and Mandarin).

The number of courses available in English in foreign schools may vary. Carleton credits commensurate to courses taken abroad will be determined by the Registrar's Office and awarded towards the student's degree.

Students are responsible for all traveling, living and incidental costs for fulfilling third-year requirements abroad. Tuition fees and compulsory miscellaneous fees will be paid to Carleton University according to Carleton University's fee structure. The student may be liable for compulsory miscellaneous fees assessed by the foreign institution, including possible fees for language courses.

A limited number of bursaries are available to offset costs. For details on how to apply for a bursary, contact the Awards Office.
