Hello Mr. Venkatesh,

Your current position as a Regulatory officer is crucial as you are a link between the company products and the regulatory body.
And now your degree in International Business helps you reach out globally.

The only link I can generate currently with this background is the role of a Business developer.
Yes definitely Business developers role is more in terms of marketing the organizatiuon. But they are more involved in developing good relations among various organizations. The typical work role would include brand placement, market expansion, new user acquisition, and awareness

Since you are already the one who knows the product of the company and in turn your global knowledge would help you in terms of expanding the business of the organization and reach out globally.

Other than that while surfing for the role of International business, got this article. Please do go through it, can be helpful.

Hope this helps.

Wish you good luck......

Dear Aspirant,

Regulatory affairs means majorly legal work and tasks, procedures, regulations, compliances, etc.

International Business is also majorly of import and export procedures and legal compliances.

I definitely feel that you work experience and international business course can give you job opportunities in MNCs in their International Business operations and that too on a managerial level.

I feel you should aim for managerial positions after completing your international business course.

Best wishes
