What will I learn?

Program description

Business is now recognized as a global practice, even if products and services never leave a local market. Global events and competition affect almost all companies and industry sectors. Therefore, it is important to understand the global environment as companies operate in more complex and diverse environment where international factors come into play.

International management is the practice of managing business, not-for-profit, governmental, or other entity's operations across countries. International management professionals are familiar with the culture, business practices, economic and political environment of countries in which multinational firms and/or other organizations operate. They have the skills needed to formulate effective management strategies in today’s globally complex and competitive environment.

As an international management major, you’ll have courses on supply chain management, global finance, innovation in emerging markets and industrial location of multinational activities. As well, you’ll take courses on cross-cultural management, global leadership, crisis management, and regional aspect of international management and business. You’ll also draw from fields such as history, geography, political science, psychology, economics and sociology. This will allow you to enhance the skills needed to meet the challenges of doing business in an organization that faces different international pressures or that operates globally.

International Management majors go on to work in a variety of work environments - both internationally and domestically. Graduates work in the private sector, government, post-secondary education and as entrepreneurs. We have graduates working in the diplomatic corps, in government, as lawyers, as professors, in college and university international offices, in international development agencies, in the oil and gas sector and as small business owners.

Students choose international management because of the breadth of training, their strong interest in global management issues, and their desire to experience the world while gaining valuable management training.

You can also choose a minor to enhance your knowledge in a secondary line of study. Many minors complement international management well such as fintech and financial innovation, political science, population health, economics, family and small business management, accounting, marketing, agriculture enterprise management and supply chain and operations management.

Why take international management at the Dhillon School of Business?

As an international management major at the Dhillon School of Business you’ll participate in the required international exchange (with more than 45 international partners).
