International Business Minor

WHY MINOR IN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS?

In our global economy, for- and nonprofit organizations of every kind increasingly operate internationally or are competing with others that already do. Having the knowledge and skills to identify opportunities and challenges in navigating a variety of international markets, cultures and geopolitical contexts make expertise in this field a perfect complement for any business-related major. Additionally, the minor is also well-suited for non-business majors who wish to acquire a solid business foundation within the context of a globalized economy. Champlain's 16-credit International Business Minor will help any internationally-oriented student:

  • Explore what international business "is" as well as the numerous for- and nonprofit career options.
  • Learn and apply fundamental business principles while running a  simulated, virtual business-and competing with other teams for market share.
  • Gain a fundamental understanding of the marketplace, including industry analysis and the implications of decision-making in regional and global contexts.
  • Examine the complex link between international politics, economics and culture and analyze the resulting business opportunities and challenges.
