What will I learn?

Humber’s Bachelor of Commerce - International Business degree program will help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to carve out a career not only in a multinational company but also in nimble, fast-paced small and medium businesses, and entrepreneurial ventures. Our program combines a balanced approach to teaching business featuring case studies, problem solving, modelling and incorporating a strong focus on marketing, finance and operations.

Our program starts with a foundation of business studies in areas such as organizational behavior, law, economics, finance and accounting, marketing, and operations management. Specialization courses in international business will give you the opportunity to gain practical skills through applied projects such as creating a strategic plan to launch a business into an international market. You will gain experience developing processes from concept through to execution.

You also will learn from experienced professors and a network of industry professionals.

Work Placement

The program requires that you complete 14 weeks/420 hours of paid work in the summer between your sixth and seventh semesters. This gives you the hands-on, real-world experience that employers value. Your placement will give you the opportunity to explore the field you’d like to work in when you graduate. We will work with employers and our industry partners to help you identify opportunities to pursue.

Career

Business today is highly complex, interconnected and increasingly global with vast amounts of goods, services and capital crossing borders daily. Our program will provide you with the broad perspective and understanding needed to develop a successful career in business here in Canada and anywhere around the world.

The international trade sector is absolutely central to the Canadian economy. According to Statistics Canada, total international trade (exports plus imports of goods and services) accounted for almost two-thirds of Canada's gross domestic product in 2017. In addition to trade in goods and commodities, Canada is a major player in the services trade including areas such as energy, finance, financial services and technical services. This is a fast-growing sector that has tripled in value in the last 20 years and carries increasing demand for skills in all areas.
