As American businesses operate in an increasingly complex and competitive global economy, demand increases for graduates who are knowledgeable in the field of international business. Our international business degree program objectives are to help you understand the importance of international business to the U.S. economy, the differences in the economic systems that exist in the global economy, the economic, cultural, and business complexities of international marketing and sales, and the principles and requirements of exporting.
Designed to provide a strong academic background for transfer to a four-year college or university, this program combines specialized courses in international business with courses in the humanities, social sciences, science, mathematics, and traditional business courses.
Careers on Career Coach
Although the program is designed as a transfer program, students may pursue employment in the field upon completion of the degree. Potential employment opportunities would include entry-level positions with firms that conduct business in the global marketplace. Learn more about related jobs:
