Our Start: The International Business Program was established by School of Management & Business. Since inception, the program aimed to be the most reputable programs in Asia. It was especially built for its broad-based orientation and high level of education performed by the content of the program and lecturers. The program offers students a thorough grounding in business, foreign culture and language.
Our Purpose: Since modern enterprises – governmental, nonprofit operate in a global marketplace, success is difficult for those who are unaware of events and cultures outside their own. The program’s goal is to equip students with the ability to work comfortably in more than one country of the global marketplace.
The Classes: International business is more than a different discipline – it is a different perspective. This definition of the program requires it to be interdisciplinary. An international business student will not take upper-level classes from one isolated department, but, rather, the international courses from all the business disciplines.
For Graduation: In addition to a thorough foundation in business, the program stresses the need for graduates to function well in a foreign environment. Competency in a second language and thorough exposure to a chosen second culture are graduation requirements. Study abroad or a one semester international internship is required and must be integrated into your schedule. The requirements of the major are designed to allow you to choose either thesis writing or start-up business as a final assignment in the end year of study.
