In the 21st century, all commerce—the exchange of goods, services, information, and money—is inherently global, connected to international supply chains and financial institutions, population shifts, global weather patterns, and a wide variety of other global factors.

Global Commerce students develop cultural agility, including foreign language skills beyond the intermediate level, both at Denison University and when they travel to places like Paris, Hong Kong, and Santiago. 

They pursue internships with international companies in locations both abroad and in the U.S., including in nearby Columbus. They interact with expert practitioners in a range of professions —from global companies to entrepreneurial start-ups to non-profit organizations — who have deep knowledge and experience to share.

Throughout their Denison experience, inside and beyond the classroom, Global Commerce majors develop the leadership skills needed to begin and succeed in a wide range of business-related professions and non-profit careers in our globalized world.

 Skills like identifying opportunities and problems, analyzing causal factors and risk, team building, negotiating, effective communicating, and informed decision-making are necessary at many levels across all types of organizations, which also must take into account the interconnected nature of the global economy. 

Global Commerce majors are prepared to succeed throughout their careers by seeing the big picture, identifying problems and opportunities that others have overlooked, and implementing creative solutions.
