The Minor in International Business studies introduces you to business and entrepreneurship, macroeconomics and microeconomics. You then get a chance to develop your knowledge in management and international business.

Please note, this minor is not available for students majoring in Business Management or Marketing.


A key element of the Richmond experience was that students learn to respect, value and appreciate the diversity of others; something I feel cannot be taught in the classroom.

One of the many reasons I enjoyed my time at Richmond was because of the diversity of backgrounds and personalities of the students. Additionally, I recognized the benefits of small class sizes and the opportunities for creating strong ties with fellow students.

It’s not just about study, this is your story

One of the following:

This course explores the context within which business practice takes place and how external and internal influences facilitate or limit business operations. Legal, political and economic factors shaping business operations at the macro- and micro- levels are considered, as well as the influence of market forces in a rapidly changing economic environment. ***This course is replaced by MGT 3200 Foundations of Business. By completing MGT 3200 you will fulfil the course requirements for MGT 4200***

This course provides an introduction to the concept and practice of entrepreneurship. The course intends to provide the ‘big picture’ on entrepreneurship, but to also cover a number of key micro issues relating to the more numerous small businesses that make up the majority of all business activity in societies everywhere. The course readily acknowledges that there is no single theory or model of entrepreneurship; but this lack of a distinct theoretical spine provides the course with its strongest advantage as this provides for an opportunity to present a multiplicity of case work and concepts. The emphasis is on comparing the diversity of approaches found within the world of the entrepreneur.

plus one of the following:

An introduction to basic economic methodology. Within a framework of supply and demand analysis, the behavior of producers and consumers is examined in the context of the efficient allocation of scarce resources in society.

This course introduces students to a theoretical treatment of national income and its key component parts. Macroeconomic models are used to examine policy issues and contemporary problems relating to output, income, spending and employment as well as inflation and growth.
