The International Business Department at Saint Joseph’s University offers both major and minor courses in international marketing, finance and management, as well as a capstone course in global strategic planning. The design of the international business (IB) program at SJU is interdisciplinary in nature. Students enroll in a variety of courses exploring the international dimensions of business, as well as other courses in the College of Arts and Sciences that enhance knowledge about other countries and cultures. In addition, students are encouraged to study abroad or participate in a study tour to gain direct exposure to an international experience. This versatile major can be paired with minors in foreign languages, international relations, economics or any other disciplines that will provide a well-rounded experience.


Graduates of the international business major find employment opportunities with multinational corporations, international financial institutions or with other organizations exposed to the international environment. Students may have the opportunity to participate in overseas assignments after a few years with a company, assuming they have acquired the more specialized skills needed by the company in its foreign operations. After completing the IB major students may also pursue a graduate degree, including the master of international marketing program at SJU or other graduate programs in a wide range of fields.
