Today’s markets are more interdependent and global than ever before. Assumption’s international business program offers core business courses complemented by Assumption’s strong offerings in the liberal arts, which extend from languages and literature to geography, philosophy, and political science. This valuable combination helps students gain the intense business knowledge and broad-based cultural awareness they need to work effectively in various environments with colleagues of diverse backgrounds. Other opportunities like study abroad and internship opportunities make international business an exciting study option. People with second language skills can leverage these skills in their career development.
Assumption’s major in international business prepares students to succeed and excel in that increasingly global marketplace by developing a broad range of knowledge. The international business curriculum includes 8 or 9 business courses, 6 specific liberal arts courses (including 1 or 2 language courses), and 3 elective liberal arts courses that enhance your cultural literacy. This interdisciplinary program provides students with solid business background in accounting, marketing, and other topics, and in-depth study of international management, business strategy, Asian business practices, modern Europe, or the study of international relations.
To earn a minor in international business, students must take 21 credits in business studies, including 1 management course, 1 marketing course, 1 accounting course and 4 electives. An international business minor studies the conduct of business across borders and develops the ability to create value internationally and complements a variety of liberal arts studies.
