The International Business major was designed to prepare graduates in both business fundamentals and knowledge of the economic, political, cultural, legal, and other environmental factors that shape the patterns of international trade, investment, and financing in today’s global economy. Students are strongly encouraged to enroll in one of Monmouth College’s foreign exchange programs. Participants in these programs learn about that nation’s business environment, culture, and language while in that particular country of interest.

Employers of international business graduates include: multinational corporations, financial and research institutions, manufacturers, management and marketing consulting, government, and technology companies. Graduates joining small and mid-sized firms will find many complex and challenging international business opportunities in the United States and abroad.
