International Business

Advancements in the fields of communications and technology, as well as international travel, have shrunk the planet substantially. These developments have also created many more business opportunities for companies around the globe. The opening of nations’ economies and lowering of international trade tariffs has increased the volume of international business to a level that was unimaginable just 20 years ago. Now, a manufacturer in the United States not only targets American customers but foreign ones as well.  As a specialist who understands the diversity of international business – and is armed with a strong business school background – an international business major can be a valuable participant in global business ventures.
