Admissions Requirements & Application Information
When applying for admission to NC State University, high school students completing the Common Application should select ‘business administration-international business’ as their intended major.
My name is Emily Haddock and I am from New Bern, NC. I graduated from The Epiphany School of Global Studies and have studied Spanish for nine years. I was raised cheering on the Wolfpack; my dad graduated from State and my twin brother goes here as well. However, I chose NC State and the Poole College of Management because of the IBDD program. I chose NCSU's IBDD program because I've always wanted to live abroad. I am most excited about the opportunity to become fluent in another language while fully immersing myself in the culture of another country. It truly is a once in a lifetime experience and I can't wait to take full advantage of all of the opportunities I'm given during my two years abroad.
My name is Phillips Glass and I am from Charlotte, NC. I graduated from South Meck High School and have studied German for 13 years now, because of that I am enrolled in the German Track in the IBDD program. Choosing NC State was a last minute audible for me because I originally had my heart set on the University of South Carolina, then I learned about the IBDD program and it completely changed my decision. The program is truly one of a kind due to the abroad experience students receive.
I chose NC State because I fell in love with North Carolina during a family vacation. Afterwards, I discovered that their universities were top ranked in the country. My goal was to go to a university that offers excellent programs that fit my interests. I knew that NC State was the perfect fit and after finding out about the IBDD program during orientation, I was even more excited. Every time someone asks me what I like most about my school, I answer that it has top-notch study abroad experiences and an array of opportunities. Being able to study abroad for 2 whole years compared to a summer or a semester is beyond my wildest dreams. I am so excited to be at the chance to live in Italy and fully embrace the culture and become fluent in Italian.

Thoughts on Studying Abroad: Hello! My name is Sarah, and I am currently living in France. (Does it count as “living” if I have only been here for 2 weeks?). A little back story of how I got here…I went into my senior year of high school not having a clue about where I wanted to go to college.
Sydney came to NC State and the IBDD Program from North Mecklenberg High School, in Huntersville N.C. She studied French in high school and learned Spanish and Creole while volunteering in the Dominican Republic throughout high school and during her first semester at NC State. Sydney was active in campus life during her two years at NC State, as a member of Alpha Kappa Theta sorority and as a University Sustainability Steward. She excelled academically and was a teaching assistant for a finance professor. Sydney completed her first internship in global supply chain management with Biomerieux, a French medical research and pharma company based in Durham, N.C.
Sydney is now studying and living in Reims, France at NEOMA Business School. She will spend three semesters taking the remaining business courses in French and completing a second internship again at Biomerieux in France. Sydney will graduate in June 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from NC State and a Bachelor of Science in International Management from the NEOMA Business School.
