Why International Business at Coe?

The major in international business focuses on issues impacting both domestic and multinational corporations such as the structuring of international business transactions and production, the importance of supranational governance (such as regional trade agreements and international organizations) and theories of managing, financing and marketing across cultures and environments. You will be well prepared for additional international business studies at graduate or professional school and have a strong foundation for careers with an international focus. 

You will be able to concentrate your studies on courses that include theories, concepts and models helpful in understanding the complex international environment. In addition to courses in business and/or economics, you will be required to study a foreign language and complete either a study abroad experience or a significant project focused on an international topic.
