Global Business

Undergraduate Major

Many firms face difficult challenges due to differences in country-specific cultural, economic, political, technological, regulatory and organizational contexts. The Global Business major provides students with the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to navigate these challenges and develop successful careers in the global business environment.

Global Business refers to business that is conducted across national borders.
