The International Commerce degree program is designed to combine courses with a global emphasis in business, liberal arts and foreign language. It focuses on developing competencies in international business and global economics alongside international cultural awareness and language skill. Students completing this program of study will be able to transfer these competencies to senior college programs in International Commerce. Because transferability of credits varies with colleges and universities, programs and departmental majors, students are urged to discuss their program plans with an OCC counselor and transfer institution.

Graduating from this program qualifies the student for the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement. Students should work closely with an OCC counselor to identify courses from the MTA List which apply to the endorsement and to select courses that will satisfy the intake requirements of the intended transfer institution.  

All courses that satisfy MTA requirements must be completed with a grade of "C" (2.0) or higher.  All courses comprising the 62 credits required for the degree must be completed with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher.

Because transferability of credits varies with colleges and universities, programs, and departmental majors, students are urged to discuss their program plans with an OCC counselor and an advisor at the intended transfer institution.
