Title: A thesis presented in fulfillment of the requirements for the degree with distinction in international business in the Fisher College of Business of The Ohio State University
Creators: Wedwaldt, Tara L.

Abstract: Due to technology, the lowering of trade barriers and the globalization of markets has exploded, and been made into actuality. When it comes to information technology and global business, this project examines the past and present, and attempts to predict the future. From an educational standpoint, utilizing two main groups, this project asks the questions: "Is Information Technology in Global Business Positive or Negative?" and "Is International Business Dependent on Information Technology?" Through personal interviews and surveys, the different groups' answers do not seem to align. Utilizing both positive and negative case studies, this project supports the opinion that I.T. can affect global business both ways. It supports the view that small business can grow into international businesses, but also many workers may lose their jobs due to I.T. and global business. Overall, this project provides a prediction for the future of I.T. and global business and questions that every businessperson should be asking themselves as we move into a globalizing world.
