Major Coursework

As Management majors, students should adhere to the following criteria in major course selection for study abroad:

  • Management courses must be direct equivalents to courses at UT, including the following:
    • MGT 331: Leadership Skills*
    • MGT 336: Foundations of Organizational Behaviors*
    • HRM 360: Managing Human Resources*
    • MGT 462: Managerial Analytics
    • MGT 463: Solving Complex Managerial Problems
  • 3-6 credit hours of Management coursework is allowed abroad.

Students should meet with an International Programs and Study Abroad (IPSA) advisor to receive final approval for Finance Management coursework.

*Indicates coursework that is more easily found abroad.

Non-major Coursework

Although Management majors are only allowed to take 1 – 2 Management courses while abroad, there are many other ways to take business coursework and fulfill other degree requirements abroad. Other types of courses available for study abroad include:

  • General education (ethics, arts & humanities, non-business electives)
  • Pre-business core (MGT 202, ECON 211 & 213, STAT 201 equivalents)
  • Business core (FINC 301, BULW 301 & 332 equivalents)
  • Foreign language (HCB requires completion through intermediate level)
  • Collateral/concentration


Students interested in Management coursework while abroad should consider:

  • Students are only able to take Management coursework after completion of their tracking courses, which is typically after Sophomore year.
  • Management majors are able to go abroad after their first semester of Freshman year if they are only taking general elective courses or Pre-Business core courses.
  • Students should not study abroad their final semester at UT if they plan to graduate in May due to the delay in transcript processing.

Selecting Your Collateral/Concentration

Another option of courses to take abroad are through your collateral/concentration. Please refer to your Haslam Student Handbook for all possible combinations.

The International Business (IB) concentration offers the most flexibility in course availability. Please note:

  • All 12 credit hours of IB elective coursework can be taken abroad.
  • Business coursework that is international in scope and upper division (300-400 level) can be counted as an IB elective.
  • IB courses give students the opportunity to pursue country or region-specific coursework that offers unique insight into international business practices.
