About the Major

Each day the United States forges stronger economic links to the global economy, making a knowledge of international business essential in meeting the challenges and competition of the global marketplace. Internationalism is a core pillar of the Ramapo College mission. The International Business Program prepares its students for vital roles in our interconnected world.  

The International Business major at Ramapo College uniquely combines specialized business skills with the liberal arts to broaden students’ perspectives and intellectual abilities. Focusing on the role of the U.S. in the international business environment, the program helps students develop a heightened awareness of the changing political and social aspects of countries around the globe.

Majors in International Business acquire the ability to analyze and understand global business operations and learn to appreciate the economic, political, and social climates of the world’s diverse regions. International corporate internships, study abroad opportunities and foreign language skills are extremely valuable aspects to the curriculum. Each student will receive close personal advisement from a faculty member, and opportunity to access these various areas.

The International Business program offers a liberal arts core, that include fundamentals of international business, introduction to macroeconomics/microeconomics, language studies, and courses in international business. Students select a concentration in one of the following business areas: management, accounting, finance, marketing, economics, or computer information systems.

This major leads to a Bachelor of Arts in International Business. While the Program is based in the Anisfield School of Business, its multidisciplinary approach draws on faculty and courses from other schools of the college.

A minor in International Business is also available to students in other majors.

International Business graduates will find job opportunities in accounting, marketing, finance, and management with corporations engaged in international business activities. They may also find opportunities in government and education. Students will also be prepared for graduate work in business or in liberal arts and language studies are also possible choices.

The International Business faculty includes specialists in a variety of business concentrations, as well as specialists in the liberal arts. Because many of the Program's faculty have had broad experience in the business world, both in the United States and abroad, they are able to give students both theoretical and practical aspects of their fields; nearly all of the faculty hold doctorate degrees.
