International Trade

How do various cultures influence business decisions on a global scale? How do the functional business areas of marketing, management, accounting, finance and law change in an international setting?  This course is designed to enable students to understand the critical importance of the role of multinational decision-making and strategy with respect to trade issues.

Students in this course will examine the major issues in international trade and commercial policy and be exposed to their real-world applications which derive and illustrate models of international trade.  The course covers rationales and benefits of international trade, protectionism, the political economy of commercial policy, international trade and development, and economic integration and world trade.  At the conclusion of this course, students will gain the ability to identify current trends in international trade and foreign investment, explain the governmental impact on international businesses, and describe the concepts of export and import practices and procedures.
