APSU offers new concentration in international management

With global business leaders in high demand, Austin Peays School of Business is offering a new international management concentration within the Bachelor of Business Administration program in Fall 2004.

International management education has been a trend in education, especially business education, and continues to grow as a result of increased globalization of commerce, politics, culture and communication, says Dr. Steven Anderson, professor of marketing and program coordinator.

“International management education has been a trend in education, especially business education, and continues to grow as a result of increased globalization of commerce, politics, culture and communication,” says Dr. Steven Anderson, professor of marketing and program coordinator.

The international management concentration, Austin Peay's first international major, will prepare students for careers in international accounting, banking, economics, finance, marketing and management.

The program was developed after a School of Business survey indicated that 25 percent of APSU's management students would change their major to international management, if given the opportunity.

Anderson also expects 10 to 20 percent of the program's students to come from non-business majors as a result of growing interest in diversity and more global programs.

The concentration consists of APSU's liberal arts core, the B.B.A. core and seven additional courses to include: International Accounting, International Economics, International Finance, International Management, International Marketing, Financial Markets and Institutions and either Retailing Management, Entrepreneurship or E-Commerce.
