I believe that if you are doing a major in International Business, or any type of business in general, pick a minor or double major in something you are truly interested in and passionate about! I give this advice because I majored in Accounting in college, which was filled with many rigorous courses and heavy technical knowledge. I chose not to double major or minor, and instead, chose random classes as my electives that sparked my interest. I feel that this was extremely beneficial because I had a wide range of perspectives to offer when going into interviews when it came time to find a full time job. Every company that is hiring wants a candidate that is well rounded, and choosing a minor or double major in something that you can speak on and bring into your new job is something that is worth noticing!
