Global Business 101

The old saying abounds “it’s a small planet.” It’s true in terms of your access to information across the globe and your connections to important decision makers and business leaders from all over the globe. This is especially evident in global business. Global business is an expression that refers to any company or entity that operates outside of its home country.

Companies of all sizes must ensure that they are well-prepared to tackle the challenges of global trade. This includes understanding international business and its nuances and also being able to work with partners and colleagues from other countries.

The undergraduate Journal of Global Business and Trade JGBT, also known as JGBT includes articles, reports, and comments that are relevant to global business. It’s also an official journal of the Consortium for Undergraduate International Business Education (CUIBE).

It’s crucial to know the impact of cultural differences on the success of your company abroad regardless of whether you’re a business owner who is considering entering international markets, or want to make sure your employees are prepared. It is crucial to understand the customs, holidays and social norms that are prevalent in the various cultures you might encounter when doing global business. This is a great method to improve your “export intelligence.” It can also be beneficial to know what to expect from business associates in different countries, like different levels of comfort with personal space or how to greet a coworker in a different language.
