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.
