Recognizing the necessity of global awareness for success in today's business world, the Department of International Business at Quinnipiac University prepares students for a wide range of careers in practically every field and type of organization: business, not-for-profit and government. The following fields have demonstrated a particular need for graduates in international business:
manufacturing firms such as multinational corporations, import-export trading companies, or any firm that currently exports or imports or practices outsourcing;
service firms such as shipping, banking, insurance, finance, consulting, market research companies, legal, airlines, hotels and travel agencies;
government agencies such as the foreign commercial service, consular staff, the Export-Import Bank, and state and federal commerce departments; and
international organizations such as the World Bank, IMF and the United Nations.
The program's mission is to offer an international business curriculum that helps nurture and develop students' abilities and interests. Students are exposed to a multiplicity of perspectives and challenged to develop a broad and inquisitive mindset. Concurrently, practical knowledge and skills also are emphasized through the active development of technical and business related skills.
