Unit 1: Exploring Globalization
In Unit 1 we explore the concept of globalization and its opportunities and challenges. We'll look at the impact of culture on the conduct of business and explore how we can learn about and understand other cultures. International business is influenced by the political, economic, and legal environment in which it operates. We'll investigate some of the various legal, economic and political systems in the world. Finally, we'll look at different viewpoints of ethics that influence the conduct of international business.
Unit 2: Global Trade and Monetary Systems
As the world progresses toward a united global marketplace, the issues surrounding international trade increase in both number and importance. Countries must decide how much they value protectionism as opposed to open markets. As governments ponder trade issues, they must also consider the financial aspects of their decisions. Closely connected to trade questions are the issues of exchange rates. In this unit we will explore the complex issues that must be addressed when countries want to trade their goods with others.
Unit 3: The Organization in a Global Marketplace
In our final unit, we'll explore the micro level issues of global business; that is, we will study how the strategic decision to enter a foreign market influences the functions of marketing, human resource management, management, accounting, and operations.
