International Business

  • Whether you plan to work for a firm headquartered in Canada or elsewhere, Schulich’s International Business specialization equips students to succeed in international environments. Elective options are designed to give students a global perspective and the ability to perform in multi-cultural situations and contrasting business environments – skills that are in high demand amidst both large and small enterprises.

    Learn to assess commonalities and differences between countries and regions around the world and the corresponding impact on management functions in a range of industries through the IBUS specialization.

    Students commonly combine other specializations, such as Marketing or Finance, with International Business.
