The concentration in international business is designed for students interested in developing their knowledge and skills related to doing business in the global economy. The development of a deeper understanding of international business will be crucial in the future. Subject matter covered in this concentration focuses on topics such as the cultural, economic, technological, and political aspects of varying national business environments and their impact on international business operations. Students are exposed to a variety of key international business concepts ranging from strategic planning in the global arena to managing behavior and interpersonal relations. Additional topics include international trade theory, national trade policies, foreign market analysis, managing technological issues, and international strategic management.
From a job placement perspective, few firms today operate or compete exclusively in domestic markets. Possessing a knowledge of how people, firms, and institutions interact across borders provides international business concentrators with a competitive edge. This concentration pairs well with other D'Amore-McKim concentrations such as finance, marketing, and supply chain, among others.
