Oracle is an international company with operations in just about every geographic location worldwide. The best example I can provide is the SBU I currently work in; Real Estate and Facilities. We have space planners, project management, portfolio management, operations planning and management. All supported by professionals in contracts, negotiations, accounting, administration, and so forth. Oracle also has needs in sales and marketing, product development, mergers and acquisitions and so on.
I work in marketing and work hand in hand with other overhead groups, sales and technical people. My business degree background helps me to understand what is going on in areas outside of my marketing team.
