At the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, our International Business major is designed to give students a combination of skills in a functional area (i.e., a specialization) and global business.  Therefore, international business graduates pursue careers in one of the six areas they choose to specialize in. 

To be successful in international business, one must thrive in unfamiliar and dynamic conditions. Cultural and language barriers, socioeconomic diversity, geopolitical tensions, and unstable legal regimes are some of the constant challenges we prepare our students to face. These conditions are present in domestic and international markets.

Excelling within such conditions requires a high level of understanding, patience, judgment and other social skills. Our students graduate with an open mind and a knack for curiosity, finding it virtuous to test their beliefs. They are well-grounded and confident even when they face being wrong in order to get it right. Their quest for understanding breeds good judgment and an intuition to lead through empathy.
