The globalization of the marketplace demands employees who can successfully compete in a multicultural business environment in the United States and around the world. Understanding the significant cultural, economic and political differences between countries and regions is vital to success in international business.
To develop these competencies, the Leeds School of Business offers the Global Business Certificate to its students. The certificate provides diverse exposure to global business principles and opportunities to develop intercultural self-awareness and a global mindset.
