INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS

General Information:

In today’s increasingly global competition, the study of business from an international point of view is crucial to the growth of the economy. Students in International Business will study the effect of politics, economy and culture on the world of business and how to effectively manage a global company.

The International Business Program emphasizes the competition of foreign and domestic firms, the huge potentials of foreign markets and resources, and the study of international influences.

 

Career Possibilities:

An international business degree in itself can apply to many areas of business: management, human resources, economics, and so on. It might be a good idea to enhance it with either a foreign language or another business emphasis.
