APU’s international business major prepares students for global enterprise. The degree provides a solid foundation in accounting principles, business law, finance, economics, statistics, and marketing. These then serve as a framework for in-depth study of the unique challenges presented by international business endeavors, and provide an understanding of the global market from a Christian worldview.
Students compare economic models, study the intricacies of international trade and finance, and examine the industrial, political, and demographic forces that influence international marketing efforts. Students may also choose to incorporate language learning into their curriculum to prepare for international interactions. Classroom learning is supplemented by study abroad internship opportunities, which allow for practical application of classroom knowledge. International business majors leave APU ready to guide a business through the global marketplace.
Students may choose to complete an MBA immediately upon graduation through the Young Executive MBA program or the Millennial MBA program. Both programs are accelerated, intensive, and experience based, allowing the student to complete a master’s degree in one additional year.
