Start Up, Work and Lead in a Globalized World

Global Management students gain knowledge in theory, practice and imagination in experiential activities in our classes. They develop projects for business startups or nonprofits with peers, compete for funding, and implement their ideas in their home countries or locally.

Courses in the major draw on economics, politics, mathematics, and management and organizational psychology. The major, within the framework of an Earlham liberal arts education, supports development of critical and analytical thinking, good written and oral communications skills, and an interest in contributing to the world.

Our faculty have work experience in a variety of countries and advanced academic degrees.  We regularly involve learners in our research.


In preparation for our Field Experience Seminar course as well as for future career development, every student does an internship, either here in Richmond, off-campus within the United States, or even abroad.

The Earlham community is extremely diverse with students from over 40 states and almost 80 countries.  We value the different experiences represented in our classrooms and how it enriches our discussions.

About 80 percent of our alumni have completed or expect to pursue master's degree or Ph.D. programs.

Recent graduates have found employment at a wide variety of organizations from First Bank in Indianapolis to the World Bank in Palestine.
