International Business

Economies are intertwined as never before, and in most industrial sectors competition is increasingly global.

Why Study It?

Simultaneously, there are a number of new and dynamic events and processes that influence the world economic, cultural, and political arenas. It is essential that managers understand the implications of these changes. They affect managers in at least three ways. First, firms that see themselves as primarily domestic companies are facing increased competition by foreign firms in their domestic market. Secondly, foreign markets and resources are becoming increasingly important in terms of incremental revenue, profitability, sources of technology, and capital. And third, U.S. world-wide economic influence has diminished in a relative sense, and it has become more important than ever for executives to be aware of international influences.

This area of emphasis addresses these issues and introduces students to the challenges and basic skills required for effective international business management.

Alicia Nash, BS, International Business (2016)

"My time at UCCS prepared me for an exciting career more thoroughly than I could ever have realized while I was still in school. Not only did I receive a first-rate, well-rounded business education, the cultural awareness I gained from the international aspect of my degree plan opened countless new doors along my career path. The College of Business also supplied many opportunities for learning outside of the classroom, including the Career Coaching Program, which has been immeasurably useful as I begin my career."
