Students seeking a career in international trade can pursue programs at the associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s level. These programs teach students the skills and knowledge needed to operate in an increasingly global economy.

This specialization prepares students for international business careers with a policy emphasis, while adding a substantial understanding of the effects of international business on development, the environment, and social conditions in recipient countries.

Students will study the economics of international trade and finance, the cultural and political as well as economic factors that shape international business behavior, the specific effects of international business activity on growth, wealth distribution, the environment, labor conditions, and politics, the interaction of business and government in developed and developing countries, and the specific ways by which international business might be influenced or regulated to achieve goals beyond profit.

Broader than an MBA and more focused than a master’s in international affairs, ELU’s Master degree in international Trade and Commerce program will immerse you in the nexus of business, economics, international relations, and public policy. You will develop the skills and expertise in global finance, investment, trade, and development to excel and lead in the public and private sectors, multinational organizations, NGO’s, nonprofits, and consulting firms.

This degree is an innovative master’s degree program for current and aspiring private and public sector professionals who seek the knowledge and skills to be effective in an increasingly complex world marketplace.

Designed to provide the practical tools needed to compete in the global economy, this interdisciplinary program explores the way business, technology, law, economics, and public policy affect complex cross-border activities. Unlike traditional international affairs programs, ELU’s degree focuses on international economic issues such as global trade and investment. It is also distinguished from an MBA program by providing training in the political, technological, cultural, and social aspects of the global economy.
