|Description:||Reserve a seat in our business class, and you’ll be prepared to work anywhere in the world. International Business students study commerce with a global perspective. In addition to examining management, marketing and finance in international contexts, courses draw insights from experts in the fields of politics, economics, and sociology. You’ll acquire international street sense, adapting business models to differing workplaces, planning for cross-border tax, banking or legal issues, understanding trade dispute contexts, or addressing cultural sensitivities in global marketing campaigns.
Opportunities to practise real cultural exchanges exist inside and outside the classroom. Montreal, a multilingual and multicultural city, is the perfect place to pick up a second (or third) language. And JMSB students hail from more than 100 countries: nearly a fifth are francophone and a quarter speak a language other than English or French as their mother tongue. International Business will allow you to do business in the global marketplace, make ethical decisions in an international context, and motivate consumers from different cultures. Work terms make it possible for you to: perform on-site audits of international standards procedures and implementation, study the implications and repercussions of international policy change on domestic and international markets, source, allocate and distribute local and international industrial materials, and make short- and long-term forecasts for product sales and competition in key markets.
