What we do

Global Operations makes implementing globally sponsored projects easier for ASU faculty and staff. We identify international legal, tax, employment, financial, procurement, and health and safety issues and deliver solutions.

Global Operations should be your first point of contact for any global project issue. We have the knowledge and connections to save you time, money, and frustration — freeing you up to focus on research, discovery, and development.

Global Operations also strategically advances ASU’s capabilities to conduct international business. We identify gaps in ASU’s infrastructure and develop resources and services to fill them. Establishing a robust infrastructure means our execution abilities match your innovation.
