This program is designed for students who currently hold a 2-year or higher degree and/or have employment/ professional experience in international business. This coursework will help prepare students for positions above entry-level in operations involving international trade, commerce and/or business, or provide them with the basic understanding of the complexities involved if they plan to operate on their own. Students learn to understand and critically evaluate problems associated with marketing products in other countries; understand some legal requirements for international trade established by other countries; examine the implementation of cross-cultural issues in international marketing; and apply the basic principles and tools of finance in a global context. Students who do not hold a degree (2-year or higher) and do not possess significant experience in the area, should consider pursuing the 25-28 unit International Business certificate.
