International Business

The dramatic growth of international business activities which began soon after the end of World War II shows no sign of abating. International trade, investment, and currency speculations as well as the reach of multinational corporations have been significant forces in shaping the interdependent world economy.

The International Business Certificate is designed to give Georgia Tech (business and non-business majors alike) undergraduate students foundational exposure to the concepts and methodologies relating to the:

  • Current international business patterns and their history.
  • Evolving social, political, legal, and economic environments in home and host countries as they impact on international business operations and strategy,
  • Major economic constructs relating to international flows/
  • Financial/monetary forms and institutions that measure and facilitate international transactions, and
  • Selection of optimal strategies for firms facing international opportunities and constraints.

The certificate is firmly grounded in the management and economic disciplines and supplemented by a number of carefully selected course requirements in the social science and language training. The requirements provide a solid, balanced grounding in international management on which students will be able to build in their future professional and educational endeavors.
