You don’t need anyone to tell you just how global the world of business has become. Many of the products you use (and even many of the foods you eat) were produced in a faraway land, and your call for technical support may have been answered on the other side of the world. If you’re already in the workforce, your company may have customers or even facilities in such places as China, Mexico, and Germany.
You need to be fluent to succeed in this kind of world. Fluent in another language, quite possibly, but definitely fluent in the ways of international business. The MBA program at Ball State meets this need in a big way, by incorporating aspects of international business in just about every core course.
In the Accounting and Decision Making course, for example, the implications of global business are addressed front and center. Managerial Finance covers financing decisions in a global context. International issues come up in Marketing Management, and international considerations are right in the title of Global Strategic Management.
