This course provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of international business and the institutions involved in the process. This course will draw upon high level meetings such as the Annual Meeting of the Academy of International Business and students will take part in a project to influence stakeholders in International business issues. Tailored seminars and case study exploration will enable students to produce and publish a finished documentation for social media, YouTube films or traditional commentary pieces addressing core issues of concern. We will teach each other and learn from each other by the use of analogies, parables, and examples - which will help us understand and remember.
