The globalization of business is one of the defining economic trends of the modern era. The development of massive communications networks, fed by fiber-optic cable, cellular technology and the Internet, has created an environment in which almost every business is part of the worldwide market.
The International Business major was crafted to enable students to take full advantage of these unprecedented opportunities.
I decided to take the privilege of studying in the US as an opportunity to learn as much as possible, not only through school but also by working on campus every year. I was lucky to meet China Mobile International at a USF career fair, and was selected among the five chosen to work in the US as Graduate Trainees. I believe that if students understand the privilege of studying at USF and they are persistent with the job search, anybody will be prepared to work wherever they desire.
