Description of Program
Every business is a global business in the 21st century. From the smallest e-commerce entrepreneur to the multinational conglomerate with subsidiaries on six continents, every business today has the potential to expand its reach beyond a local operation and capitalize on emerging opportunities, no matter where it is.
International business majors learn how to think globally about the business world. A fundamental truth is that while business principles may be universal, the successful application of principles in global markets today often requires local knowledge and a heightened cultural sensitivity.
To major in international business at La Salle, you must meet the requirements of either a second major (this can be outside the School of Business) or a minor in Risk Management and Insurance (RMI). Students with a second major outside the School of Business must fulfill all business core, math, economics and psychology/sociology courses that are required of business majors. A second major in a functional business area, such as accounting, marketing and finance, is important for an initial career placement and is emphasized more in the early stages of business careers. International business skills and knowledge are generally utilized after mastering these functional skills
