Developing the leaders of a global, free-enterprise society
Crossing borders increases the complexity of business and with increasing globalization; businesses require individuals who can work in and for international organizations. The International Business program is designed with the future global leaders in mind.
The International Business curriculum draws on a range of disciplines including accounting, politics, law, and psychology. Courses build the framework for analyzing and understanding the firm and the individual's position in the international marketplace, while management seminars prepare students for the tasks of planning, directing and staffing in the international realm.
In addition to learning policy and management strategies, students will achieve proficiency in a foreign language. With such extensive preparation, Northwood graduates launch careers in fields such as import/export management, economic development, international marketing and international telecommunications.
