In keeping with the tradition of American business education, the International Business program at John Cabot University provides students from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds with a challenging business curriculum in the context of a dynamic learning environment. 

Required courses are balanced between the theoretical and practical. Small class sizes permit most of the upper-level courses to focus on active learning through class discussion and teamwork. All courses emphasize the importance of clear and accurate communication, both written and oral, and require projects, reports, and/or formal presentations.

The final course of the international business program is a capstone course, International Business Seminar. This course is taken by students in their senior year, to integrate the principles, concepts, and techniques developed in earlier core courses. In this course, students examine issues regarding the strategic management of enterprises competing in a global environment. The International Business Seminar makes extensive use of the case-study method of teaching.
