Global Business and Entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia


This academic specialization is designed for students who want to understand business, marketing, and entrepreneurship in an international context. Because of the progressively global nature of commerce, and Asia’s increasing importance across industries, Vietnam is a perfect laboratory for you to see economic development firsthand.  You will combine a series of upper level business courses with a 15-week internship. Past internships have included a variety of different fields with an international focus such as:

- Market Research
- Investment Management
- Supply Chain and Logistics Management
- Hospitality
- Consumer Goods and Services Management

Equally as important as what you will take away from this experience is what you will give back in return. As part of the Global Business and Entrepreneurship in Southeast Asia specialization, you will be able to do an internship to enhance your curricular experience in Ho Chi Minh City. You will receive academic credit through LUC for your internship. Please visit our internship page for more information.

All students in this specialization will register for:

IBUS 370* Internship in International Business

plus business courses drawn from:

ENTR 201 Introduction to Entrepreneurship
MARK 310 Consumer Behavior
MARK 363 International Marketing
MGMT 321 International Business Ethics

You will also be able to take one or two additional courses from the full course list as well as UNIV 103:  Orientation to Living Abroad, which is required of all students.
