Foreign Residency Requirement

Global Business Management (GBM) students must complete a Foreign Academic Experience. The Foreign Academic Experience is completed through either an individual international business internship (GBM 497) or through a foreign study experience at the university-level of at least one semester in duration. Students considered by the California State University to be "international (foreign) students" satisfy the Foreign Academic Experience through the CSUSM residence requirement. Refer to the University Catalog for more information.

GBM Option students may substitute GBM 497 for the Senior Experience team-oriented project (BUS 492 and 493) required in other Business Administration options. All GBM students must either complete BUS 492 and 493, or else take GBM 497.
