Business Management

Global Business

… is redundant.

That’s what our very own Professor Terry Scout says. Today just about every business is global, in its reach, its competition, and its opportunities. It’s why Prof. Scout takes students abroad every summer (2013 destination: Germany!). And it’s why we have partnerships with great business school programs around the world, from Buenos Aires to Hong Kong.

Today markets, customers, competitors—and opportunities—are everywhere. The world’s fastest growing economies are in Asia and Africa. General Motors sells more cars in China than in the U.S. And 19 out of every 20 people on our planet are not American.

To help you develop the global perspective that employers want, we encourage you to make study abroad part of your college experience.

Studying abroad gives you first-hand experience with other ways of life. You’ll get a deeper understanding of how culture can vary from country to country, and how that affects markets, firms, and strategy. When you come back home, you’ll be amazed at how differently you view things you took for granted before.

What’s Required for the Major

To major in Business Management you have to have a global learning experience, but you don’t have to spend a whole semester abroad. You can also study a foreign language through the 202 level, take two global-focus courses, or participate in one of our short international programs. Full details, including what courses count, are in the college catalog.

To learn more about study-abroad opportunities, the best place to start is the Global Education Office.


Global Business Concentration

Many students planning to study abroad and interested in further study of international business choose to pursue a concentration in Global Business Studies, administered through the International Studies Program (students are not required to major in International Studies).

In addition, students interested in a particular region may wish to pursue a regional concentration in African Studies, Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, Near Eastern Studies, or European Studies.

You’ll find full information about the Global Business Concentration and other international concentrations here.
