Hands-On Learning

Did you know Internationalism is at the core of Ramapo’s mission? Your courses will introduce you to international studies, fundamentals of international business, macroeconomics/microeconomics, language studies, and international business. You’ll select a concentration in a part of the world to specialize in, such as East Asian, European, Global, Latin American or American (U.S.) Studies. Finally you’ll also choose an area of business to focus on in management, accounting, finance, marketing, economics, or computer information systems.

Your major requires an international experience such as a corporate internship or study abroad – Ramapo is affiliated with programs in over 70 countries. Consider our China Immersion Experience where you will live and visit Shanghai and Beijing while learning first hand from local and international business communities, officials, students and professors.

Ramapo students have gained internship experience at European-American Business Organization, Merrill Lynch, Ralph Lauren Polo, Venezuelan Consulate, and Global Alliance for Women’s Health.
