Earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BSBA) with a concentration in International Business at Nichols prepares students to do business in an emerging global market. This interdisciplinary degree program is built on three pillars: International Business, International Management, and International Affairs, Governance, and Policy. 

Using case studies, international travel, and key internships, the International Business concentration prepares students for tasks like   

  • managing a multicultural workforce,
  • entering foreign markets,
  • working with government agencies involved in international markets and trade,
  • recognizing cultural differences in business practices—such as those in management, marketing, finance, and economics; and
  • working in financial institutions with foreign operations.

For four years in a row, Nichols has been awarded the title of Best College to get a Business Education by the Worcester Business Journal. Why? Because our BSBA programs place enormous emphasis on professional development, helping students to build a repertoire of functional skills and encouraging them to build the self-confidence to use them. 

Careers in HR Management

An education in international business offers the benefit of global application, and career opportunities in the field are vast and diverse. Graduates of the program go on to enter careers in foreign operations, foreign policy, and international trade and finance. 

A variety of job titles are available in the field of international business:

  • International Management Analyst
  • International Marketing Manager
  • Global Financial Analyst
  • International Media Planner
  • International Loan Officer

Many careers in the field show promising growth. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that employment of Management Analysts and Financial Analysts is slated to increase 14% and 11% from 2016 to 2026, respectively—faster than the average for all other occupations.
