B.S. in International Business

The global business market is a complex and diverse system of relationships between countries, companies, and consumers – and they all come together in New York City.

By majoring in International Business at MMC, you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the international market, right here in the epicenter of global business.

You can customize our curriculum to suit your interests – whether you want to work with developing economies or in global marketing and technology. Further enhance your education with a minor in Economics, International Studies, or a foreign language.

Many students study abroad and pursue internships (that often lead to job offers) at companies like Google, Marc Jacobs International, Ericcson Consulting, and private investment funds.
