Business Administration, International Business Management Concentration, B.S.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The International Business Management Concentration is built on the premise that effective business administration must recognize the multicultural dimensions of the workplace today. Students must therefore understand global issues, cultural, political, and economic differences, foreign management styles, and the international aspects of finance and marketing. Through classroom study and internship opportunities, students may explore these and many related areas. The four-course core concentrates on the fundamentals of international business management practice, intercultural communications, international financial matters, and international marketing. Upon completion of this course of study, students may seek positions in a multinational company at home or abroad. Students may also seek positions with international organizations - such as the United Nations, the Departments of Commerce and State, and the World Bank.

Graduates with a Business Administration degree may take advantage of the College's Five Year Bachelor/Master Program, and complete their MBA with just one additional year of full time study.  Generous scholarship supports students wishing to undertake this challenge.

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, students will:

  • demonstrate an ability to conduct relevant research in their field of business and/or their concentration.
  • exhibit mastery of basic business knowledge, concepts, and terminology in the specific areas of marketing, management, accounting, and finance.
  • demonstrate knowledge and skills required to obtain employment in their field.
  • develop the skills necessary to continued success in their fields including leadership abilities and a heightened sense of social responsibility and ethics.
