International Business is designed to help students develop the appreciation, knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to live and work in a global marketplace.
International Business is an ever-changing field that affects everyone across the entire globe. Consumers buy products made in countries all around the world. Workers find changing employment opportunities due to international trade and global competition. Companies compete with firms from other countries for the money spent by consumers. As U.S. companies increase international business activities, our roles as consumers, workers, and citizens expand.
