Making your mark in the international workplace

International businesspeople may carry various currencies in their briefcases but the most important currency in the world of international business is a liberal arts education that instills cultural competency, effective communication skills and a flexible mindset. Success in this field demands traditional business skills such as financial literacy, management and problem-solving, but also soft skills like emotional intelligence and adaptive thinking.

As an international business major at Susquehanna, you will be trained in all the necessary skills to guarantee you’ll enjoy a long and fruitful career on the international stage. Susquehanna distinguishes itself from other universities with an accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an elite honor as fewer than 5% of business programs worldwide have earned an AACSB accreditation. Another distinction is that Susquehanna requires all international business majors to intern abroad and helps prepare you for your internship every step of the way, including securing funding.

You can pair your degree with a minor from the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures to make you an even more desirable job candidate. Fellow graduates from Susquehanna’s alumni network can advise you on job opportunities, which are more plentiful for international business majors because you will have the adaptability to work anywhere. Apply now, and make sure your passport is up to date.
