International Business Program & Courses
In our increasingly global world, international business courses are essential to operating a successful franchise or foodservice business in a competitive market. Our international business program takes theoretical knowledge to another level by requiring Business Program students who choose this concentration to spend a minimum of two quarters abroad.
By enrolling in our partner international business programs through the Laureate International Universities network, students can appreciate the intricacies of global business firsthand in Brazil, Turkey, Spain, France or Germany. Students may even petition to enroll in a program outside of our network if they find an international business program that piques their interest.
Sample courses include:
