International Management Certificate
The Scheller College of Business offers a certificate in International Management for business administration and non-business administration majors at Georgia Tech. The dramatic growth of international business activities which began soon after the end of World War II shows no sign of abating. International trade, investment and currency speculations as well as the reach of multinational corporations have been significant forces in shaping the globally interdependent world economy.
The Georgia Tech certificate in international management is designed to give Georgia Tech undergraduate students foundational exposure to the concepts and methodologies relating to (a) the current international business patterns and their history, (b) the evolving social, political, legal and economic environments in home and host countries as they impact on international business operations and strategy, (c) the major economic constructs relating to international flows, (d) the financial/monetary forms and institutions that measure and facilitate international transactions, and (d) the selection of optimal strategies for firms facing international opportunities and constraints.
The certificate is firmly grounded in the management and economic disciplines and supplemented by a number of carefully selected course requirements in the social science and language training. The requirements provide a solid, balanced grounding in international management on which students will be able to build in their future professional and educational endeavors.
Students working to receive a Certificate in International Management must earn a grade of "C" or higher in all of the above named courses. All courses must be taken for a letter grade and not as pass/fail.
