Major Requirements

The 21st century global business environment, the most intensely dynamic one in history, requires a new type of leader. This modern leader must have traditional functional knowledge and analytical skills, yet be increasingly adept at leading diverse teams of innovators and managers from around the world. These leaders must have a deeper global awareness and intercultural understanding than ever before.

The global business leadership curriculum provides an intensive, community based, 16 credit sophomore course experience. Juniors and seniors will take upper level core classes in global business and as seniors take a capstone advanced global strategy course. Students will receive the opportunity to develop a global mind-set through study abroad experiences, international internships, and in-depth studies in doing business in a specific region of the world.
