International Business Job and Education Requirements

International business is still a newly emerging field, making it very accessible for new graduates entering the workforce or for employees within a company looking to make a change. For most international business jobs, companies require a Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field. Many candidates also have a Master of Business Administration (MBA) or another professional degree such as a Master in International Management (MIIM) to illustrate their passion for business, economics, and management. 

In addition to education, viable candidates are also successful communicators. These international roles require employees to act as an ambassador or representative for their company and to engage in contracts and deal making with other companies or clients abroad.

Companies expect professionals to not only know their products and mission, but also to keep in mind the cultural nuances that may be present. Without the proper respect and consideration for differences in business practices, clients, businesses, and entire markets could be lost. Learning new languages, keeping up with new practices and technologies, and furthering your education are great ways to stay abreast and maintain your competitive edge with international business matters.

Here is a list of job titles for international business and international affairs/development positions.
