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 495--old 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 495 for the Senior Experience team-oriented project (BUS 495--old BUS 492/493) required in other Business Administration options. All GBM students must either complete BUS 495 or else take GBM 495.
