Organisations are looking for ways to expand and operate across international borders. The International Business Major equips you with the skills and experience you need to succeed. As you develop your strategic decision-making abilities, put your cross-cultural skills into practice and explore new ways of thinking, you will build a skill set essential to practically any business operation.
On the other hand, the Global Politics and Policy Major will pique your interest if you are actively participating in shaping the local and global forces that affect political institutions and their policies. It will enable you to take up effective roles in local, state, national and international political institutions by developing your deep understanding of real-world political and policy issues and encourage you to apply your knowledge and skill sets to it.
