Business Administration: Global Business Option (EA65)

The huge increase in import penetration moreover, the massive amounts of overseas investment means that firms of all sizes face competitors from everywhere in the world. International business differs from its domestic counterpart in that it involves three environments—domestic, foreign, and international—instead of one.
