The mission of the Division is to prepare students for leadership positions in accounting, economics,
finance, and marketing, through the delivery of academically sound and globally oriented undergraduate and graduate programs.
Our Division’s main goal is to prepare students for leadership positions within management, international business, management
information systems, and decision science. Through our programs, undergraduate and graduate students acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to
spur managerial and technological innovations in organizations, with the goal of improving productivity and quality.
The IBTS Division offers six major academic programs, and several concentration/minor academic programs.
In carrying out its mission, the Ph.D. program will seek highly intelligent, knowledgeable and creative students who demonstrate an intense interest in international
business administration and global issues. The Ph.D. program is committed to providing a nurturing and challenging intellectual environment for its faculty and
doctoral students. The program emphasizes preparing the candidates to understand the complexities of business and its social and international contexts, while
developing a specialized expertise and the research skills necessary to continue to expand the body of knowledge concerning international business administration.
Students will receive rigorous training in the discovery, acquisition, creation, extension, application and dissemination of knowledge of international business
administration. This training will give them the tools for enhancing global productivity and provide understanding of the critical role cross-cultural factors play
in shaping international business activity in a dynamic and interdependent world.
