International business is one of the most exciting
and challenging phenomena in the world today.
The field of international business encompasses
culture, politics, economics, finance, technology,
in fact all activities that influence transactions between
firms of different countries. These factors are also
increasingly affecting the affairs of domestic business.
This class aims to provide an integrative overview
of the vast area of international business. The global
environment will be examined first, before considering
how these factors interact with managers, small and
large businesses, and the consumer. The focus of this
class is international; however many of the topics
are directly relevant to domestic firms as well.
