International Business

Offered: On campus, online

Consider an international business profession
International business coursework will prepare you for careers in all aspects of the global economy including commerce, government, and industry. Globalization has made cross-border business more common than ever. Most international business careers involve sales and marketing but, as businesses expand around the world, more entry-level management positions are opening. While some positions involve extensive travel, in many cases, international business is conducted via technology, so little or no travel may be required.

Is international business right for you?
Successful global business operators are willing to learn about other countries’ customs and cultures, are intuitive about verbal and non-verbal communications, and are adept at learning new languages while also being excellent listeners. They are flexible and able to see situations from different perspectives while maintaining a patient and good-humored attitude.
