"The International Business major requires special skills to adapt management methods to the needs of foreign environments. SJU prepares their students for administrative positions in international divisions of American companies or careers in the national or international government agencies. As the International Business Society President, I work towards helping students achieve their goals alongside the hardworking professors and advisors."

"The FBE Program spoke to me Freshman year when I heard its motto, "the best way to predict your future is to create it." Coming in as an undecided business major, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the FBE major has allowed me to explore new ideas and experiment with my own business propositions. For my Intro to Entrepreneurship class, I competed in a Shark Tank Competition that involved creating a new product or service along with its business model. Shortly after the competition, I partnered with one of the judges and am in the process of starting my own business, thank to the exposure I was given by the Management Department."

Saint Joseph's management department has done a wonderful job of preparing me for just that.

"I changed my major to International Business my sophomore year, and picked up a double major in LEO. Since then, I have enjoyed all of my experiences in the classroom as well as the relationships I've built with my classmates and professors. The concept application style of learning within the IBU department is beyond beneficial, because it's one thing to memorize terms and information, it's another to be able to apply and use it. I am happy to say that I have a job entering my senior year with Kimberly-Clark Corporation and I have my studies to thank for that."
