International Business: Global Commerce in the 21st Century

The Internet has made it simple and straightforward for even a high school student to quickly set up shop and sell goods and services to customers worldwide. But international business can be incredibly complex and difficult to navigate, even for otherwise-experienced entrepreneurs. This course examines the peculiarities of global commerce by looking at finance, trade, legal issues, and the importance of culture. In addition, students will look at many examples and case studies of how organizations have successfully operated across cultural, legal, and linguistic boundaries.
As every industry is becoming more and more global, this course gives students the appreciation, knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to live and work in a global marketplace.
