It is essential that the business administration student of today - the manager or entrepreneur of tomorrow - be fully aware of the global nature of the modern business environment. No student graduating from this program can afford to be insulated from the significant impact that the 21st century global economy will have upon their lives and careers.
All functions and aspects of business have globalized - from marketing and law to finance, and from alternative business models to management practices. Yet there is also the local dimension of globalization which stems from the emerging patterns and trends in business policies and practices that increasingly expose all participants, regardless of size, industry or service, to competition on a global scale.
The objectives of the International Business major are to offer students a business education from a global perspective; to understand how differences in political, economic, regulatory, social, cultural, and demographic factors affect business operations; and, to identify appropriate business strategies in a global economy. International Business students are strongly encouraged to gain international experience by participating in an approved Study Abroad program or International Study Tour.
