International finance

If you want to manage the finance of a company over many countries, international finance is made for you. You will learn to analyze the finance of a company and to find how to improve the efficiency of its activities and increase its turnover.

International finance is a transversal sector, which means you can work for any type of company as long as it is large enough to have an internal financial department. You can also work for a bank or a consulting agency.

A BBA is perfect to start a career in finance. You can for example become:

  • a financial analyst,
  • a finance director,
  • a trader,
  • a financial controler.

International business

International business offers many opportunities! With the Internet and the rise of international exchanges, companies (including consultancy agencies, logistic companies, banks, etc.) are looking for professionals who can manage their activities in multiple countries.

Many challenges await those who choose this sector. You will have to work with different cultures, in different languages and other laws. International business is an interesting and rewarding sector to work in after your BBA.

Among the numerous opportunities, you may become:

  • a sales executive,
  • an international logistic manager,
  • an international export manager,
  • a business developer.

International marketing

International marketing is also a growing sector. As companies develop their activities in multiple countries, they need to hire collaborators who know to create a successful campaign abroad.

Communication and marketing strategies that work in your home country might not work at all in another. Worse: it may even backfire and start a bad buzz around your company. This is the reason why companies prefer to work with people who know the country they want to expand to.

Here again, you will find many opportunities. After you BBA in international business, you may become:
