Management-International Business

Is Management-International Business the right fit for me?

Management majors are leaders, decision makers, and strategic thinkers. Those who opt for the International Business concentration have an added interest in the managerial issues faced by multinational companies, as well as the political, cultural, and institutional differences among nations.

What courses will I take?

Some of the courses you might take include:

  • Cross-cultural Psychology
  • International Business
  • Multinational Management
  • Organizational Design and Environment
  • International Trade
  • International Marketing

What kind of job will I get when I graduate?

You might start with an entry-level management experience, perhaps working as a generalist in charge of a small group of people, who are involved in business transactions between and within countries; work on the logistics of international trade; or be involved in investments made in foreign markets.

  • Eli Lilly & Company
  • Kraft Foods Inc.
  • Northwest Airlines
  • Procter and Gamble
  • Gap, Inc./Old Navy
