Through the BIB, you will develop proficiency in another language, cross-cultural skills and gain first-hand international experience through a year abroad, giving you a competitive edge in your career. Courses lay a foundation across key areas of business and build on that foundation with specialized courses in international business and management. The Sprott School of Business is accredited by AACSB International and the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS).

Intensive language training – Years 1,2

In the first two years of the program, you will take intensive language courses in your choice of five languages: FrenchGerman, JapaneseMandarin or Spanish. During these years, you’ll also take core courses in business fundamentals and international business.

Full year abroad – Year 3

In third year, you’ll spend a full academic year studying in another country at one of our partner institutions to increase your cultural awareness and improve fluency in your chosen language. You’ll pay Carleton tuition fees and receive academic credit for successfully completed courses.
