International Business

Now, more than ever: Business is Global.  With the global economy more interconnected than ever before, International Business has a prominent position in the workplace around the world and here at home.

Consider this:

- Tulsa is just 20 miles from a foreign trade zone where over FORTY foreign countries have traded goods.1
- About 40% of profits of companies in the S&P 500 come from overseas 2
- More than 70% of the world’s purchasing power is located outside of the United States 3
-Thereare about as many internet shoppers in China as there are people in the United States 4
