Program Overview

In today's global economy, all businesses–whether large or small–are affected by international competitors and global events. Success in the global marketplace will depend on the capabilities of managers to understand the structures and processes that underlie international business, and who develop the skills and attitudes consistent with leading and managing teams and organizations within complex, multicultural contexts. The international business major is designed to provide this understanding and to develop the requisite competencies of global business leaders.
