International Business

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 JMSB 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 details

BComm in International Business:

A Bachelor of Commerce degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background. All JMSB students follow a core business curriculum coupled with a JMSB major, which may be combined with a minor in another discipline or any combination of elective courses that interest them.

JMSB Minor in International Business:

A Minor in International Business (12 credits) is available only to JMSB undergraduate students. This minor fulfills half of the 24 elective credits in your BComm and complements your major field of study.
