International Business
International Business Operations

International business is important and necessary because economic isolationism has become impossible. Failure to become a part of the global market assures a nation of declining economic influence and deteriorating standards of living for its citizens. International business, therefore, presents more opportunities for expansion, growth, and income than does domestic business alone. This course will cover the major aspects of international business environment and operations with the emphasis on its impact on the local business in your state. In other words, in this course, you will learn why international business differs from domestic business, economic theories on international trade, and learn how managers deal with the uncontrollable forces of international environment.
