Minor in International Business
Business is global. While some businesses may not sell products in other countries, they often are buying products or materials that are produced in part or in whole internationally. The threat or reality of competition is global for almost all products and services. Evangel’s International Business minor can be used to provide students a better understanding of the nature and influence of international business and excellent opportunities to enter careers in international business.
