The International Business, BBA major is designed to prepare students to operate and compete in the global business environment. Through a combination of theory and application students will develop an in-depth knowledge of global trade, cross cultural management, international supply chain management, methods to enter foreign markets, international management, international marketing, international finance, and international trade management. In addition, students may take advantage of international field schools and exchange opportunities (facilitated by MRU’s AIESEC and International Education office). The International Business concentration is comprehensive and highly relevant, as the business world becomes progressively more globalized.

In the completion of these international business courses, students have an opportunity to earn a Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) diploma.
