Global Business Studies

Dr. Carolyn Predmore
Director of the Program

This program seeks to develop in the student a thorough and rigorous global perspective and understanding of the international environment and markets. Such understanding is essential for any American business person who competes domestically and in the international arena. This field is interdisciplinary in nature and includes studies in economics, finance, marketing, management and government. Students who are interested in pursuing careers in the international phase of business or government may pursue it only as a second major. Proficiency in a foreign language is strongly recommended.

Every major in the program must consult with the Director concerning the fulfillment of the requirements for the major and the electives that will be most suitable for his/her particular professional and academic development.
