International Business Program

  • Program Overview

    You will be prepared to think strategically and globally, enabling you to operate in a multinational arena and manage in cross-cultural environments.

    As the global economy continues to expand, demand is increasing for business professionals with expertise in international business. As an international business major at Endicott, you will develop basic managerial competencies as well as the specialized skills, knowledge, and perspectives required to become an effective decision maker in the global marketplace.

    Foreign language courses that use the latest communicative methodologies and overseas study and internship opportunities are designed to complement the international business curriculum. You will be required to pursue two years of college-level foreign language study or to demonstrate an equivalent proficiency in a language other than English. You are also strongly encouraged to spend a minimum of one semester in a country other than your home, either in a study abroad or internship experience.
