Global Business

Economies are more connected and interdependent than ever before. With this major, students learn how to think about business in a global context and consider issues like managing multinational businesses and launching a product in an international market.

Overview

This is an interdisciplinary major preparing student to do business in the global market. At Eastern Nazarene College, students studying global business receive a well-rounded liberal arts education with a specialization in international business and courses that include management, marketing, finance, economics, management information technology, business law, leadership, accounting, and ethics. Students also complete global business courses to understand how businesses are linked ecologically, economically, geographically, and politically.

Students enjoy small, interactive classes with a blend of full time and adjunct faculty who work in their respective fields and bring a wealth of experience to the classroom. Students are engaged in individual and team projects with course simulations across multiple disciplines, competing against each other and other educational institutions and corporations across the globe.

Students may participate in two student-led clubs. The Business Society aims to cultivate interest in business and connect Eastern Nazarene College with local businesses. The Investment Club develops strategies to invest one million dollars in five different sectors (pharmaceutical, green, finance, agricultural, and merchandise). Each student is committed to researching an investment portfolio and providing an informative and persuasive presentation regarding the stock activity and reasons to invest in a company.

International Business Institute

In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in the International Business Institute, a cooperative overseas program in international economics and business that involves select colleges in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. The Institute is designed to give students in economics, business, and related areas an opportunity for a term of study that incorporates an international dimension in these fields. The summer program is 10 weeks in length and includes periods of residence, visits, and presentations in the major economic centers of Europe, India, and China.

The purpose of the program is to encourage and facilitate the integration of academic study with an international field experience. The academic work is conducted in a variety of settings, from traditional classrooms to corporate headquarters, manufacturing plants, and governmental agencies. Participants earn 12 credit hours covering Comparative Economic Systems, International Trade and Finance, Global Marketing, and Global Business Strategy. Program costs vary from year to year.

Career Paths

Students who have completed the global business program may pursue careers around the world in logistics, marketing, sales, business development, and other fields. Others pursue graduate degrees in the Eastern Nazarene College Master’s in Management program or at other universities.
