Stand Out to Global Employers

Being an international scholar has competitive advantages.

For you to excel, we guarantee you an international internship as a student in our international business program. Many students study in another country, but how many get to work in one before they graduate? Our award-winning Global Opportunities study abroad program also offers added overseas learning. Employers will value your experience living in another country, working in a foreign business environment and engaging with diverse cultures.

You'll graduate from Susquehanna ready to compete against other top candidates seeking employment in international business, marketing, accounting, government, human resources, trade, finance and non-profit work.

Because our bold curriculum is rooted in the liberal arts, you will develop essential skills that employers seek, like writing, teamwork, presentations, critical thinking, interpersonal relationships and leadership.

Further expand your horizons by adding a business minor, such as finance or marketing, or an interdisciplinary minor like international studies, to gain a deeper understanding of important topics in today's world.

World-Class Accredited Degree Opens Doors

Our Sigmund Weis School of Business is accredited by AACSB International. Less than 5% of the 15,000+ business programs worldwide have earned AACSB accreditation, making our program part of an elite group.

The powerful combination of our AACSB-accredited program and global experiences prepare you for a successful career. Whether you ultimately work in the U.S. or elsewhere, you'll have an edge with international perspective and proficiency.

Ninety-eight percent of Susquehanna graduates have jobs within six months of graduation.

The course descriptions listed later in the catalog identify prerequisites, and these suggest a certain degree of order in completing the foundation.
