Overview

Course Description

The University's language programs in Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Japanese and Spanish support this program.

Global Business is presented as a process of understanding how cultures and political systems manage their economics, and the rules and procedures that nations create to permit and encourage businesses to operate within their borders. To understand foreign business situations, an emphasis is placed on developing knowledge of and sensitivity to both the cultural and political climates of host countries.

Students completing the Global Business program from University of Redlands will gain an understanding of:

  • Issues facing organizations operating beyond their domestic borders
  • Problems and opportunities faced by developing nations as they attempt to grow their economies
  • Selected major trading relationships of the United States (China, Mexico, Japan, the EU); the major trading blocs (e.g., NAFTA, the European Union, MERCOSUR, etc.); the major U.S. and world agencies that support global trade, development, and investment; and the positive and negative impacts that all these entities have on national cultures, standards of living, civil liberties, and business in general

Students are encouraged to develop a geographic area of emphasis or concentration through interdisciplinary study. Linked to the academic study of issues and practices are the requirements that students become proficient in a second language and that they study abroad. Approval from either the Global Business Hunsaker Chair, or the Business Department Chair, is required for all interdisciplinary and overseas-study aspects of the degree.
