The international business and strategy group focuses its activities and expertise on forces affecting businesses that have to operate in a globalized economic environment. Such globalization forces pose daunting challenges to businesses large and small, whether operating across national borders or not. Increasingly, managers find themselves responsible for, being managed by, or collaborating with persons of different nationalities and different cultures.
International Business and Strategy faculty members focus their teaching, reasearch, and consulting on preparing managers who understand the complexity of the global economy, its impact on national economies, and its implications for company strategies. Further, we prepare our students to manage across national borders and cultures. We teach courses at the graduate and undergraduate level in international business, strategic management, global social responsibility management, and cross-cultural management. Our Bachelor of Science in International Business is ranked in the top 20 undergraduate business programs by the U. S. News and World Report. This program requires students to study and work overseas for up to two years. Our Executive MBA program requires two overseas experiences. Finally, all students who study at Northeastern University's D'Amore-McKim School of Business are required to study the fundamentals of international business and strategic management.
International Business and Strategy group faculty members draw on their experiences from growing up, studying, working, and teaching in many countries around the world. Some of these countries are India, Russia, Japan, China, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Kenya, South Africa, Philippines, Thailand, France, Egypt, the UAE, and Italy.
All our faculty members hold doctorates that come from diverse fields such as: International Business, Strategic Management, Economics, Organizational Behavior, Cultural Anthropology, and Engineering. In addition to a very strong research environment due to qualified faculty, our group's research is supported through the Center for Emerging Markets and the Institute for Global Innovation Management.
