Business Programs | Ashton College

In a global economy, the cross-border transportation and sales of goods, services and resources from multiple origins to multiple destinations is a complex affair. International business involves aspects of a number of interdisciplinary areas of study including international law, politics, language, accounting practices, environmentalism and culture. Understanding how these different fields intersect with one another is at the heart of the international business.

Ashton’s Business programs and courses focus on preparing students for working in a globalized trade environment. Students will walk out of the program with a thorough understanding of the contemporary business environment and trends, and increased industry-specific knowledge (international trade law, global marketing, financial strategies, market strategies and sales, among other topics).

Career Opportunities

Business programs and courses give graduates multiple opportunities to further progress in their career in international business, international trade and business management. Some of the possible career paths include: shipping specialist, business development manager, customs inspector, marketing manager, foreign investment analyst, market research analyst, risk analyst, marketing representative, tax accountant assistant, export sales manager, procurement manager, international trader, trade analyst, and international management consultant and government employee at all levels of the government.

For students considering Ashton, I would say jump in! I actually looked at a lot of other schools, but in terms of curriculum and the quality of teachers, I thought that Ashton College was the best.

Kana Takahira – Diploma in Sales & Marketing, 2012

The Diploma in Business program was an excellent experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and passionate about sharing their expertise. My classmates came from a wide variety of backgrounds; some had worked in sales, some in human resources, some even had a science background . The length of the course (6 months) was perfect for me, as it allowed adequate time to delve into different business concepts, while still ensuring my classmates and I could return to the full-time workforce quickly and begin the next stage of our careers.
