About this course

Skip About this course

In this business and management course you will learn management techniques to operate in an international economy presented with tremendous opportunities as well as risks.

Globalization has dramatically expanded opportunities for international trade, investment and economic development. At the same time, global managers are facing the prospect of trade wars, international financial crises and intensified competition over markets and resources. International organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, World Trade Organization and World Bank Group have a direct impact on international business operations.

This course develops analytical tools for understanding the rapidly changing and dynamic global economy. With these tools, you will be better prepared to anticipate the risks and take advantage of the opportunities you will encounter in the global business environment.
