Start Up, Work and Lead in a Globalized World

Global Management students gain knowledge in theory, practice and imagination through experiential activities in our classes. They develop business plans for 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, management, and organizational psychology. The major, within the framework of an Earlham liberal arts education, supports development of critical and analytical thinking, written and oral communication skills, and an interest in contributing positively to the world.

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


Every student completes an internship, either here in Richmond, off-campus within the United States, or abroad.

Internships can be completed through formal programs in Philadelphia, New York or Washington, or students can apply for funding through The EPIC Advantage for their own internship.

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.

The Global Management major is comprised of an average of 40 percent international students from all over the world. Our U.S. students came from all over the country and many different backgrounds. Students can expect to work in a multinational group on a regular basis in almost every class in the major.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
