Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) in Management
International Management Concentration
Ship’s international management concentration extends your knowledge of business, management, marketing, finance, and economics to the global arena.
The international management concentration at Shippensburg University supplements the core business curriculum with courses that extend your knowledge of business, management, marketing, finance, and economics to the global arena while familiarizing you with various world cultures, religions, and societies. Proficiency in a foreign language is a requirement of the international management major. Although studying abroad is not a program requirement, it is strongly recommended that international management students take advantage of study abroad opportunities to development language skills and enhance their awareness of cultural and business practice differences. In addition to being qualified for entry-level positions in U.S. firms, our graduates have taken management trainee positions in U.S. subsidiaries of foreign firms such as BMW, Royal Dutch Shell, and Unilever.
The John L. Grove College of Business has a number of clubs for students to participate in and learn more about their area of study outside the classroom.

The International Business Club provides students with professional networking opportunities in the international business arena and the club sponsors an annual International Business Study Abroad Expo.
