  • Global business research and analysis
  • International business planning
  • Corporate social responsibility and international development

In this School of Business program, these topics are taught alongside core business courses such as project management and business communications.

To guarantee career readiness upon graduation, the International Business Management program features a practical approach that includes gaining technical knowledge and skills through hands-on learning. A full-time, 14-week experiential learning opportunity (internship) with a participating organization further rounds out your industry knowledge and experience in international business.
