Join the Rise of Global Business

The world needs globally-minded managers well-versed in international business.

With a global management degree from our AACSB-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business, you'll be prepared to navigate the different cultures and business norms of a global economy.

You'll learn how to manage multinational businesses and grow local and national companies into international successes.

Expand your horizons through an additional minor, such as finance or marketing.

Let Your Love of Travel Take You Far

Leave Susquehanna ready to compete against top candidates in the international job market.

After spending a semester studying or interning abroad—through our London Program or another award-winning study abroad program—you'll chart your course through new environments with confidence. If you choose the London Program, you're guaranteed an international business internship.

Employers will value your experience and that you already know what it's like to live in another country and to work in a foreign business environment.
