In a globalized market economy, professional career opportunities for those with international business skills are significant. In this more open international market place, either big or SMEs companies need to be able to confront an increasing competition from developed and emerging economies and to plug into the new market opportunities these countries will provide.
There is a direct link between internationalization and increased company performance. International activities reinforce growth, enhance competitiveness and support the long term sustainability of companies. Yet, many companies in Europe and in other developed countries still depend largely on their domestic markets despite the opportunities brought by the enlarged single market, the new emerging economies and by globalization at large.
This last economic recession really push many European companies, mainly SMEs, to search for foreign markets and customers where to compensate for the declining of domestic consumption. Many of them have learned the opportunities that internationalization can bring to its companies. Therefore, now more than ever, most management teams are eager to look for new foreign markets and increase the international presence of their products and services.
