The world is shrinking. Especially in business, global is the new norm. More than 70% of the world’s demand is located outside of the United States, and this is the fastest-growing part of global demand. Over 287,000 U.S. small and medium-sized enterprises export. When including large US firms as well, US exports total $2 trillion annually. But this is only the beginning, as only a small fraction of all US firms already export. The growth opportunity is huge. In addition, US firms have directly invested $5 trillion overseas.
What does this mean for you? In years to come, U.S. jobs related to international business [IB] will multiply, particularly in fields such as international sales and business development, supply chain management, logistics and transportation, procurement and purchasing, international marketing and customs brokerage. Demand for graduates with these skills is high and growing rapidly.
