You see the major listed differently at each school (global business, international business, international management), but Simpson's Global Management major has distinctions to set it apart:

  • We offer a comprehensive business curriculum with a focus on management. Seniors take part in the management senior seminar and take a global-focused slant.
  • The global component is not merely adding a study of another language. Students infuse world politics, culture, religion, and history courses into their business studies.
  • Our business professors with international research, teaching and business experience are excited to work with globally focused students.
  • Students take advantage of may term, semester and year-long international study options, international internships and job placements. In our survey of 2012 graduates (100% response rate), all students had found full-time employment.
