Global business is integrated into your undergraduate and graduate curriculum. You’ll explore the economic, political, and cultural contexts that affect global businesses.
What does Global Mean to You?
Our global focus is tailored to your specific area of study. For instance, if you're a marketing student, you’ll learn about topics such as brand management and consumerism in emerging global markets. If you study finance, you’ll learn about international financial reporting standards.
Then you’ll test these global concepts in real-life situations. For example, students in the Global Marketing Consulting course collaborate with students in China to complete consulting projects for actual business clients. Communicating via Skype and email, they cross cultural boundaries and time zones to learn how business practices vary around the world.
Diversity Fosters Global Thinking
Our international faculty brings global issues to life in the classroom. Their unique experiences abroad, in countries such as China, Germany, India, and Israel, add context to your coursework.
You’ll also get an inside look at what it’s like to lead in a global marketplace. Guest speakers, including Mary Dupay (BSBA’81, MBA’82), managing director of Global Regulatory and Tax Operations at Goldman Sachs; Bill Sullivan (BSBA ’85), partner at Apax Partners LP; and David Der Hagopian (MBA ’76), CEO of Ravago Holdings Americas, have visited classes to share theirexperiences and offer career advice.
Experience Global Business First-Hand
You can enrich your academic experience by enrolling in a Global Travel Seminar. You’ll spend 8-10 days working alongside multinational business executives, building your network, and immersing yourself in a new culture.
If you want an even stronger focus in global business, you can earn a BSBA in Global Business or an MBA with a concentration in international business.
