Why study International Business?

Reserve a seat in our business class, and you’ll be prepared to work anywhere in the world.

International Business students study commerce with a global perspective. In addition to examining management, marketing and finance in international contexts, courses draw insights from experts in the fields of politics, economics, and sociology.

You’ll acquire international street sense, adapting business models to differing workplaces, planning for cross-border tax, banking or legal issues, understanding trade dispute contexts, or addressing cultural sensitivities in global marketing campaigns.

Opportunities to practise real cultural exchanges exist inside and outside the classroom. Montreal, a multilingual and multicultural city, is the perfect place to pick up a second (or third) language. And John Molson School of Business students hail from more than 100 countries: nearly a fifth are francophone and a quarter speak a language other than English or French as their mother tongue.

International Business will allow you to do business in the global marketplace, make ethical decisions in an international context, and motivate consumers from different cultures.

Program highlights

  • Opportunities to travel and study internationally through the John Molson International Exchange program, Community Empowerment Education Development (CEED), and the International Community Outreach Program
  • Unique program as the Major courses are multidisciplinary, including courses in Management and Political Science

Co-op program

The Co-op program offers you a practical approach to learning about exporting goods and services. During your paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks, you have the opportunity to deal with the challenges of a complex multicultural and multilingual marketplace, and are exposed to the legal implications of operating within a global environment.

Work terms make it possible for you to:

  • Perform on-site audits of international standards procedures and implementation
  • Study the implications and repercussions of international policy change on domestic and international markets
  • Source, allocate and distribute local and international industrial materials
  • Make short- and long-term forecasts for product sales and competition in key markets


United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
