The certificate is designed for all majors who wish to have a certificate in international marketing. The certificate will prepare students to understand the role of global business within a marketing framework and requires students to participate in a study abroad experience.
The certificate of undergraduate study in international marketing is open to all NIU students. Students must maintain good academic standing within the university, achieve a minimum of a C in each course applied toward the certificate, and complete all certificate work within a period of four calendar years. Marketing courses used to satisfy the requirements for the certificate may also be applied toward an undergraduate degree in marketing. Some courses may have prerequisites that are not part of the certificate curriculum. Students are encouraged to pursue their study abroad experience early in their academic career if possible.
Students interested in the certificate should contact the advisor prior to the beginning of their last semester, but preferably upon completion of MKTG 295 for planning purposes. Applications will be accepted during the semester of enrollment in the last courses to complete the certificate.
