The Global Affairs and International Business major prepares you for careers that need people who are familiar with the workings of the world economy, with exchange rates and capital flows, with international risk assessment and converging economic development, with diversity in legal structures and the variety of cultures.  This means that the GAIB major will open up possibilities in three different areas:  businesses that operate across borders (export and import, outsourcing, multinationals); international financial institutions (banks, stock markets, multilateral lenders); and governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that work in diplomacy, conflict resolution, and economic aid.
