You'll begin your program with courses in intercultural communications, global management and an introduction to business portfolio building. In these entry courses, you'll draw from business and organizational experience in your home country, and see how interconnected business activities are across the globe.
From there, you'll move into courses in organizational behavior, law and economics, always with an emphasis on the dynamic global business environment. Gradually, we'll introduce quantitative content with a global perspective on topics including economics, accounting, finance and research methods. You'll study leadership and decision making, with an emphasis on developing an understanding of international implications.
As you move into the last phase of the program, you'll study strategic planning, technology and marketing while preparing your international capstone project and, in many cases gaining practical experience with an organization, such as completing an internship.
