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 dealing with rising global competition for resources or an increasingly multicultural neighborhood clientele, all businesses are impacted by cultural differences, changing trade patterns, and the diminishing effect of distance.
Find your management edge in this 21st-century environment. Build on a solid foundation in business management in courses which bring a global focus to all aspects of doing business, from finance, operations, and leadership to marketing and cultural considerations. Widen your horizons traveling, studying, or interning abroad. Your capstone project will challenge you to identify an opportunity for positive change in a simulated developing economy, then research and develop a feasible and effective solution.
