INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT CONCENTRATION

The global economy is a reality and to meet the challenge of the 21st century, companies are seeking and hiring graduates with international business backgrounds. The rapid transfer of technology, the shrinking of world trade barriers, and the establishment of common markets and increased competition in traditional home markets have forced companies to respond. Companies now view the world as their market. Integration of production and markets and a need for stronger links to the global economy makes knowledge of International Business essential.

The International Business Management concentration is designed to study and understand the dynamic and complex global business environment within which organizations and individuals operate. In this era of globalization, business activities are increasingly international. In order to succeed in this global environment, college graduates must have clear understanding of theory and practice of core business functions as well as an ability to interact with the geographically, culturally, economically, legally and politically divergent environments within which multinational corporations undertake cross-border trade and investment.

International Business is a multidisciplinary concentration. Drawing from courses across the business curriculum, the program equips students with knowledge of international economics, foreign exchange, financial management, import/export process and international marketing. Focusing on the role of the United States in the international environment, the International Business concentration provides the knowledge and tools to students to prepare them for a career in the transnational arena, either overseas or within the United States.

Students gain the ability to analyze and understand global business operations though multidisciplinary curriculum, international corporate internships, study abroad opportunities, short term business travel courses to various regions of the world, and foreign language opportunities.
