International Business Degree (2)
Building up a business from scratch needs great amount of patience apart from a good financial back up. Though every business has its own specific cash requirements throughout the various stages of development, most businesses go through almost similar set up costs. The BBA in International Business prepares undergraduates for demanding jobs in the fields of e.g. marketing, sales, export-import operations, financial management, product management, and customer relations. Key themes of global citizenship and cross-cultural communication run throughout the course, preparing you for work in diverse environments whilst developing your awareness of the ways people do business across the world and the challenges and issues they face.
Our undergraduate business administration majors in accounting, business, and international business as well as nonprofit management minors all take a required course called the Service Leadership Project, designed to blend academic study with community service. The BA in International Business will provide you with a distinctive and challenging undergraduate experience.
Employers often include management consulting firms, banks, import/export corporations, multinational manufacturers, international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), electronics companies and transportation businesses, including shipping companies and airlines. The Sauder School of Business offers Commerce-specific exchange programs and summer programs in Shanghai and Europe. To certify your major in the Carson College of Business, you will need to complete specific prerequisite courses.

Tactical aspects of international development such as sales, distribution, and marketing need to be addressed. Companies are looking for graduates with business skills who also have the ability to think on a global scale.

The broad-based knowledge, skills and training you receive for a career in the global business world is invaluable.
