An MS in International Business (MSIB) from the University of Colorado Denver opens opportunities for dynamic careers in global business. MSIB students gain cutting-edge knowledge and skills to help them conduct business across borders.

Our innovative MSIB curriculum combines solid grounding in business foundations and knowledge of international business environments.
