About the Program
On May 17, 2006, the University of North Florida's President John A. Delaney announced that the International Business Program, in the Coggin College of Business, had been selected as a flagship program.
“This program is of the highest caliber,” said UNF President John A. Delaney. “It has the potential to draw talented students from around the world, tackle cutting–edge research projects and help solve problems facing today's businesses.”
UNF's International Business Program was created in 1995 and has quickly become a leader in preparing students for careers in the global market place. A national exam that all of the University's International Business seniors take places them in the top 5%, against more than 100,000 other seniors, in understanding global business concepts.
The International Business Program prepares students by supplementing their knowledge of general business issues with courses that teach functional business areas from an international perspective. As a result of the flagship designation, the International Business Program received $300,000 annually until 2011 to expand and enhance study abroad activities, starting with new opportunities for language study, including collaboration with the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
The International Business Program also plans to expand its award winning GlobalMBA program, which won a national Best Practice in International Education award. This program currently focuses on Europe and Asia. A second version of the international double-degree program was launched in 2011, the Global EntrepreneurshipMBA. Additional graduate and undergraduate initiatives will be undertaken as the program looks to the future.
