Contemporary Economic Systems


The International Business Environment concentration provides a “macro” view of markets and institutions in the global economy. It will prepare students for careers involving international market analysis such as international commercial and investment banking, portfolio analysis and risk assessment, new market development, international business consulting, and international business law. The foundational courses focus on an understanding of global markets and institutions. The concentration will allow the student to combine courses in broader areas of economic development, regional business environment, and/or international law, management, marketing, trade, and finance. The student will be encouraged to combine the core courses with supplemental coursework in related international subjects such as language, history, politics, and culture.
