Global Business Management

All business today is global.

From the largest transnational corporation to the smallest owner-operated local business, all businesses are impacted by the increasing interconnectedness of the world’s economies. Whether it is rising global demand for resources or the increasing multicultural nature of society, all businesses are impacted by falling trade barriers and the diminishing effect of distance. The Global Management Major is designed to give students an edge in managing in this 21st century environment. The course of study in the Global Management Major builds a solid business management foundation with an in-depth exposure to the various aspects of globalization and functioning in a multinational and multicultural environment. Graduates of the program will be well prepared to function effectively in business, whether at home or abroad.
