Course aim

The course aims to introduce students to the main concepts of international business. In the new millennium, the drive of most businesses is to "go global."  The trade and investment barriers have been easing and we are witnessing the emerging of more companies into international markets. However, with such expansion, there are opportunities as well as challenges that students of international studies need to understand.  In this course, students will familiarize themselves with various controllable and uncontrollable business environments and will develop an understanding of managing international businesses in such environments. Furthermore, students through various cultural dimensions will be able to understand the multicultural aspects of international businesses as well as the ethical responsibilities of international firms.
