The bachelor of science in business administration degree with an international business area of concentration requires two years of a foreign language so students can demonstrate a working knowledge of a language other than English. It is recommended that all students consider participating in a semester abroad program to gain first-hand experience of a foreign culture.
Business is conducted in every corner of the world, from the corner street market to multi-billion dollar conglomerates. Students who concentrate in International Business will find themselves part of a global business culture.
Case studies, field consultation with real world clients, individual and group projects, computer simulations and Internet applications are just some of the ways that students learn about an expanding global market at the Helzberg School of Management. Students study such critical topics as foreign exchange and exchange management, balance of payments, international financial markets, and social and cultural environment issues.
Every phase of the business endeavor can have an international aspect. For example, human resources, finance, economics, management, marketing, advertising, logistics and law can all play a role in international business.
