What is global leadership?

In the context of business, global leadership refers to the talents and knowledge necessary to effectively manage international companies. Professionals in this field must take specific factors, like legal jurisdictions and cross-border commerce, into account. This discipline combines general best practices for operations and leadership with the specific considerations needed to work effectively across national borders. Additionally, global justice, cultural awareness and bridging divides between dissimilar groups can all come into play in global leadership positions.

Earning an online international business degree can position you as a strong candidate and purposeful leader for global businesses. A focus on the unique nature of international business means building especially relevant talents and recognizing specific risk factors that may not be present in the domestic economy.
