International Business Strategy

Bachelor of Commerce (BComm)

Why choose International Business Strategy?


International business strategy scholars ask questions such as: Do cultural differences impact international partnerships? How do you market a new airline route? What is the best way to set up a business in China?

International Business scholars focus on the cultural, political, economic and linguistic elements required to succeed in today’s global market. This program will give you an introduction to international business, and offer you specialized international courses in functional areas (such as marketing and finance) and geographically focused courses for specific regions. You'll complete projects, formal presentations, group projects and various case studies during the course of your degree.

I couldn’t figure out which concentration I wanted to go into. Luckily for me, the Haskayne School of Business offered many courses in all concentrations that would help me figure that out. When I took a few international business classes, I found them very interesting and knew this concentration was meant for me. One of the classes I found interesting was international trade management. Producing an international business plan for a real company that could be implemented in the real world was an amazing experience. The information we were exposed to and how it all came together was extremely useful.
