What are my options?

The Business: Management & Marketing degree integrates functional areas of business with a focus on management and marketing, but we also offer an additional optional "add-on" concentration for international business which allows you to combine your interest in travel and other cultures with a career in business. The global economy has created opportunities and challenges for entrepreneurs, businesses, governments, and non-profits. An understanding of global business practices and cultural similarities or differences can lead to career opportunities in international management, human resource management, sales and marketing, financial management, non-profit management, cultural advisors to businesses, and government positions.
