The globalization of the marketplace demands managers who can successfully compete in a global/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 global settings. Managers in a global business must not only be sensitive to these differences but they must also adopt the appropriate policies and strategies for dealing with them.
To address these issues, the Leeds School of Business offers to its students the Global Business Certificate. The certificate entails core courses focusing on global topics related to Accounting, Finance Management, and Marketing plus additional requirements that build on the students’ understanding of the functional areas of business and provide them with an appreciation of the global environment. The certificate supplies students with a framework for developing the appropriate mindset to be effective in a global marketplace. These are the certificate requirements (click on the titles to download a PDF document with additional details).
