Bachelor of Science with a Major in Business, International Business Concentration

The bachelor of science in business with a major in business with a concentration in international business provides students with the analytical tools and conceptual framework needed to understand the international financial, political, and economic environment; how that environment influences a firm’s strategy and performance; how culture plays a role in guiding a firm’s strategic activities; and how a firm can leverage home and host country resources to overcome challenges inherent in managing a multinational enterprise. The academic program allows students to understand international business from three interrelated perspectives: international economics and finance, international marketing, and international corporate strategy.

This field provides the basic academic foundations for entry-level positions in international business, particularly in multinational corporations, international banks, and governmental agencies. Such organizations include the Export-Import Bank, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, and the Departments of Commerce, State, and Treasury, in addition to international institutions such as the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation.
