International business in the 21st century

Learn from professionals who’ve been there

If you hope someday to work for a multinational company, our International Business major is the place to start. You’ll master a language, study abroad at least once and come to understand the value and responsibilities of corporate global citizenship. By the time you graduate, you’ll know how to succeed in business and give back to the countries you serve.

In Their Own Words

“The X-Culture Project at the 2015 Academy of International Business X-Culture Symposium in Savannah, Ga., was one of my favorite in-class experiences during my time at Eckerd. It is always an honor and a privilege to meet so many young people invested in our world. Every student at the conference was a great example of what it means to be a global citizen, and I am excited to see what the future business world holds for each of the 50 talented students. I am proud, honored and blessed to have had the opportunity.”
