Course Title: Introduction to International Business
Course Number: GEB 3350
Course Description: Today, more than ever, the average individual can feel the interdependence of countries within the global economy and the impact on our daily lives. The clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the price we pay for a gallon of gasoline are daily reminders that we live in a global economy. What is also apparent is the direct link between business and politics and the impact one has on the other. In this course, we will focus on political, cultural, strategic, and structural issues in conducting global business in both developed and developing economies. The course will combine both theoretical concepts and practical applications of operating in a global environment. And, because issues in this environment change rapidly, we will focus on current events through use of national and international publications. This is a practice-oriented course designed to help students achieve an understanding of how commerce is conducted in an increasingly global supply chain. We will utilize case study, discussion of current events, student research and class discourse to understand the key mechanisms of international trade. By the end of the course, you will walk away with a clear knowledge of how business is conducted in the international forum, and have further developed basic analytical skills essential to good business case analysis. It is my hope that you will gain not just the knowledge, but also a practical understanding of the issues and solutions leading to success in international business.
