The International Business major gives students the opportunity to examine the complex challenges that face managers when organizations and products cross national borders. The overall program is structured to develop basic managerial competencies as well as the specialized skills, knowledge, and perspectives required to become effective decision-makers in the global marketplace. The increasing demand for employees with expertise in international business follows directly from the number of businesses, including firms of all sizes, moving into the international trade and investment arena.

Endicott College is committed to providing students in the International Business major with the foreign language and intercultural competencies necessary to succeed in today’s interdependent global business community. Foreign language courses that use the latest communicative methodologies and overseas study and internship opportunities are designed to complement the international business curriculum. Students in International Business are required to pursue two years of college-level foreign language study or to demonstrate an equivalent proficiency in a language other than English. Students in the International Business major likewise are strongly encouraged to spend a minimum of one semester in a country other than their home, either in a study-abroad or in an internship experience.
