Why International Business at Nazareth?

In Tokyo, a typical business meeting is tightly scheduled and formal. But in Sao Paolo, it is social and casual. Knowing how to approach these differences is essential to working in today's global economy. But etiquette and cultural issues are only one aspect of international business.

The international business degree program at Nazareth College prepares students to compete in the global market through the exploration of global trade, legal and political systems, economic policies, language, accounting and banking practices, environmental issues, ethical considerations, and more.

We help students develop as innovative thinkers with an entrepreneurial international business perspective that is increasingly in demand in the United States and abroad. International business majors focus on the skills crucial to this profession: oral and written communication; social, technological, analytical, and critical thinking; and cultural competency.

Program Highlights

  • Internships are a strength of this program, offering hands-on experience and potential job leads.
