The International Business Program is designed to prepare students to serve in society and the church with the principle that “our work is worship.” The International Business Program is structured to give students an authentic learning experience that will enable them to appreciate the challenges of the global business environment. The students will obtain a working knowledge and understanding of the increased number of risk factors that compound the difficulty of managing global business across countries and continents. The thread of cross-cultural communications, strategic management and leadership is a vital component of the International Business Program. The program will culminate with an internship or a practicum that provides students an opportunity to apply management principles and skills.
Upon completion of this program, the student should be able to:
- Demonstrate management concepts in an existing business.
- Evaluate a business idea and develop a business plan.
- Analyze business operations and provide recommendations for improvement.
- Evaluate financial condition and statements of a business and propose courses of action.
- Demonstrate an understanding of the unique challenges in a global economy and the problems raised by differing cultures.
- Apply management principles to manage people and processes within an international organization.
