Courses


I B 350 • International Trade

04970 • Fall 2019
Meets TTH 9:30AM-11:00AM CBA 4.330
(also listed as EUS 348)

This is a “macro” course that considers international business primarily from the perspective of aggregate impact, general forces, and overriding theories and focuses less on individual management decisions. Although the concepts are generally broad, I’ll attempt to talk about how they affect business decisions. Aug 8, 2018 Page 2 Most course material will be presented through lectures and the textbook. Most lectures will be in class, with supplementary “mini-lectures” of 1-5 minutes available online. I will also assign readings to update material in the text, apply concepts we cover, and to go deeper into certain subjects. To direct your own learning and learn from your classmates, you will research topics of interest to you and present your findings in class. You will also apply what you learn to a country and evaluate how that country’s economic dynamics can impact a company, an organization, or another country.
