COURSE PREREQUISITES

The course is design for students coming from different backgrounds with an interest in international business and its applications to different fields and topics. Although a basic knowledge of management, strategy, and economics is helpful, no specific prerequisites are required. Students are expected to attend the entire course and take the final exam.

  • To demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of key concepts, assumptions, causal relationships and processes relevant to international business literature.
  • To critically review assigned readings.

COURSE ASSESSMENT & ECTS

At the end of the course each student is requested to hand in a 3-5-page proposal, which will be assessed on a pass/no-pass basis.
