College of The Albemarle (COA) has received approval from the North Carolina Community College System to offer a new program of study – International Business – to begin in the Fall 2013 Semester. International Business is a concentration under COA's current Business Administration Program. This new program of study prepares individuals for positions in international business through studies in business, social science, and specialized courses in international marketing, law, economics, and trade practices.
Students will be expected to demonstrate a knowledge of geographic, political, and cultural differences; the ability to process import/export documentation; and a knowledge of international economics and business practices.
Employment opportunities are available in import/export departments, freight forwarder companies, customs house brokerage firms, international banking, state and federal government organizations, world organizations, and other internationally active businesses.
The International Business concentration includes twelve classes (36 credit hours) that are transferable to a four-year program. The program will be available at all COA campus locations – Elizabeth City, Edenton, and Manteo – and will be offered as hybrid, internet, and traditional classes.
