Global Business Environment

This course outlines the most important characteristics of today’s global environment. It describes the forces driving the international economy and the essential tools, rules and norms of international trade. International business impacts most people, governments and institutions around the world. This may be as a consumer of a product imported from a foreign nation, an employee of a multi-national firm, a government official in a developing country hoping to create jobs through investment from a multinational firm, or a domestic company suddenly experiencing competition from an offshore firm. In each situation, individuals will be impacted by the laws, agreements and institutions which govern international business. This course will examine the theoretical and practical aspects of international business and the management of firms operating in an international environment. Topics will include international trade theory, the international business environment, trade agreements, global strategy, logistics and marketing.
