About The Program

LVC’s International Business Program provides students with an integrated program in business, global studies, language, and immersive international experiences, with additional goals tied to developing international competencies. The program examines and evaluates internal and external factors (cultural, economic, political, and social).

You will benefit from existing relationships with local, regional, national, and global organizations and institutions that are eager to hire LVC students, particularly for internships. You can also double major with global studies (only 9–12 additional credits), thus creating a unique skill set applicable to a broad range of career options.

Why LVC?

  • International business majors can identify fundamental management challenges posed by the international environment and describe techniques for addressing them through the integration of management, marketing, finance, and other functional areas in international business.
  • International business majors can double major in economics, global studies, languages, or the social sciences—greatly enhancing internship and career opportunities.
  • International business majors benefit from LVC’s relationships with local, regional, national, and global organizations and institutions that are eager to align with LVC students, particularly for internships.
  • Aspire to an international career? There are opportunities for international business majors to pursue a dual major in international business and global studies (only 9–12 additional credits), thus creating a unique skill set applicable to a broad range of career options beyond the business context.
  • International business majors can describe how organizations adapt resources (including people), processes, and structures to a global business context.
  • International business majors can identify varied sources of globalization and describe globalization’s major effects on individuals, institutions, and organizations.

The LVC International Business Program offered many opportunities. Utilizing core knowledge attained through coursework, I completed a micro-finance internship in Uganda, Africa, which included the composition of a Business Literacy course for micro-lenders.
