International Management, Bachelor of Science



International Management professionals apply their cross-cultural and global analytic skills to solving complex challenges facing businesses across many global industries.  The dynamic business environment requires professionals trained to identify global trends and skilled in approaching modern global dilemmas with cultural sensitivity and specific knowledge of the regions of the world where they work.  Modern management of international business requires leaders who will model socially responsible behavior for corporate performance that considers economic, environmental, social, and governance impacts.

The International Management major offers students the opportunity to participate in international internships; global destination courses with embedded travel to countries in Europe, Asia or Latin America; or, in programs such as GLOBE (Global Loan Opportunities for Budding Entrepreneurs), students serve as a manager of a microfinance business making loans to entrepreneurs around the world.  These intensive experiences uniquely qualify students to secure jobs as managers of international divisions of major corporations, as experts in import/export activities, as foreign trade professionals, as entrepreneurs seeking to carve out a new business with international operations, as governmental specialists, or as social entrepreneurs with a vision to create systemic change that responds to issues of social injustice, poverty, and environmental degradation.

Faculty bring a wealth of experience to the classroom, and they create an exciting and dynamic learning environment, using engaging teaching techniques.
