What are OBU grads doing with their International Business Degree?
A degree in international business does not necessarily mean working for an international organization. Domestic companies competing with U.S. or foreign firms with operations abroad also want graduates with this additional expertise. International business graduates are finding work both in the U.S. and abroad with companies that are addressing global market opportunities and global competition; graduates are working for a European company's operations in the U.S., a major accounting firm in Latin America, banks and consulting firms. Others choose to use their training in business missions or government.
