The global business environment, in which change is a constant, requires a different type of leader. This new leader must have functional knowledge and analytical skills, yet be adept at leading teams of innovators. These leaders must have a global mindset that combines an openness to and awareness of diversity across cultures and markets with a propensity and ability to see common patterns across countries and markets. At the same time in an organization with a global mindset, people view cultural and geographic diversity as opportunities to explore and are prepared to adopt successful practices and good ideas wherever in the world they come from.

The global business leadership curriculum allows students the opportunity to select from the following concentrations:

  • Marketing,
  • Supply chain management, and
  • Nonprofit and social innovation.

If a student does not select a concentration, faculty advisors are available to help shape the choice of various elective classes to craft a learning experience tailored to a student’s post-graduate plans.


Global Business Leadership is focused on ensuring students expand their global business mindset, business knowledge, professional skills and ethical frameworks. Assessment is embedded throughout the curriculum to measure progression of student knowledge and inform our pedagogy.
