Cornerstone University’s international business program prepares you to become an adept business leader in a global economy. Through gaining skills in economics, analytics, business marketing and management, you will understand how businesses operate in diverse cultural settings.
Every year, our world becomes more and more globalized. This demands more from our business leaders as well as from budding business professionals. It’s one thing to understand the importance of business leadership and management, but it’s another to contextualize them into a global economy. With the international business program at Cornerstone, you can integrate both into your experience.
With the help of dedicated faculty and peers, you will be challenged in ways you never have been before. The rigorous education you’ll receive at Cornerstone will prepare you for the scenarios you may face in the professional world. The relationships you’ll build during your time here will bolster your character, integrity and drive. When you graduate, you will be prepared to face the world head-on and provide valuable insight in your career path.
