The International Business Major at University of Manitoba offers a range of courses that help students to understand and manage globalization from a strategic perspective as well as functional perspectives. These courses are taught by faculty members who have vast experience living overseas and conducting research/business abroad. The geographic diversity of faculty teaching International Business courses is definitely unique to the U of M, and is not to be seen at other business schools.
In addition to imparting knowledge through relevant coursework, the University of Manitoba also offers several international exchange programs that provide an opportunity for students to develop their skills of international management in a direct manner by living in a different country and interacting with students, faculty and people in that country. The range of countries with which the University of Manitoba has exchange programs is also very unique and is rarely seen at other business schools.
Students who major in International Business choose from among a wide variety of management jobs in functional areas like finance, marketing, operations management, and human resource management. If you work in marketing, for example, you might be involved with the advertising and sale of a product or service that is made by a Canadian subsidiary in a foreign country. Whatever your specific area of interest, as your career in International Business proceeds, you will likely alternate overseas postings with work in Canada.
