If you're looking for a career that offers you the opportunity to work around the world in growing and fast-paced fields, a bachelor's degree in international business from Mercyhurst University will take you there. International business majors are prepared for management careers in international banking, manufacturing, trade, finance, and government organizations, as well as for entry into graduate or law schools.
