The International Business certificate exposes students to issues in global business, such as cultural differences in management and business practices, economic, political, and regulatory constraints to business practices, differences in customer and market characteristics, etc. A sound understanding of these principles becomes increasingly important as one moves up the career ladder, into more managerial and administrative roles.
