Today´s businesses are influenced by global events, global supply chains, foreign governments, and consumers from all over the world. The Markets and Management Studies Department encourages students to take advantage of study abroad opportunities, business internships, and Duke Engage experiences to build their knowledge of global business practices. There are several study abroad opportunities with course content that will count towards the MMS certificate. The Duke in Geneva program offers a course in International Business and the Duke in Montreal Program offers a Marketing course. Other programs (both Duke and non- Duke ones) may offer courses that count towards the certificate. Contact the Duke Global Education office for more information http://globaled.duke.edu
