Program Overview

Berkeley College offers an Associate in Applied Science degree in International Business for students who are interested in globalization and how business has been affected by the process of opening up borders and creation of trade agreements. Businesses no longer compete only in the United States or their own country. Free trade and free movement of goods and labor have made it easier for a business to sell their products and services literally anywhere on the planet and have made them open to competition from overseas as well. As businesses seek to lower costs and raise profits, individuals who can speak multiple, languages, know local customs and proper business approaches, are in high demand and short supply.

The program consists of classroom courses which emphasize real-world education through examination of cases and education which will be applicable on the job. Those classes include international business, international trade policies and practices, international marketing, international management, computer applications in business, fundamentals of accounting for managers, business organization and management, sociology, psychology, macroeconomics, microeconomics, mathematics with business applications, and principles of management.

Through completion of the program, students will have demonstrated the professionalism and skill necessary to have earned their degree. The qualifications demonstrate that the student has been able to apply the principles they have learned in the program into their eventual development as a functional affective professional in their field.  These qualifications include but are not limited to: the ability to demonstrate how business spans nations and cultures to sell products as well as to source materials, products, and manufacturing, to understand how to compete in an interdependent world by managing cultural diversity through creative problem-solving, and to demonstrate a foundation in international trade, marketing, and management, focused on global business practices and an understanding of the cultural and environmental context of international business.

    School Overview

    During the Great Depression, women attended Berkeley College, in New York City, to learn vital executive secretarial skills. First established by Alyea M. Brick in 1931, Berkeley added a two-year secretarial program awarding college credit and then opened a second campus in 1936. With the introductions of computers and new technologies, Berkeley College expanded horizons, adding additional campus locations, increasing the number of academic programs, and admitting male students by 1977. Today, the private, for-profit Berkeley College maintains three campus locations in New York and six locations in New Jersey in addition to Berkeley College Online. Students can pursue associate’s and bachelor’s degrees, along with certificate programs.

    Berkeley College Online offers degree programs for non-traditional students and students requiring added flexibility. Courses are delivered asynchronous, and students complete weekly assignments at their pace and have access to coursework 24/7. Typical online classes include reading and writing assignments, in addition to discussion boards and possible online group projects.
