International business professionals must develop a life-long commitment to learning about the world, its peoples, and their cultures. Not only does this knowledge help them do a better job, it also shows their respect for the many different participants in the new economy. Earn an International Business degree at Thompson Rivers University.


Respect leads to friendship, which in turn leads to prosperous, long-term business relationships.

After graduation, it is expected that a significant number of students will pursue the Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation indicating their commitment to the new profession of international trade. After gaining valuable work experience, students finishing the International Business degree at Thompson Rivers University will also be well prepared to enter one of the many graduate programs in international business and possibly go on to a career in teaching and research at the college or university level.
