College of Business (WBUAD)
International Business
This course presents an analysis of economic development and international trade in modern times, with an examination of current U.S. relations with other nations. Attention will be focused on the impact of foreign trade on the aviation industry and the industry's contribution to economic development.

The course is designed to provide the student with an understanding of the problems of international economic relations in an interdependent world of nations organized under different political structures, each of which have attained different levels of economic development. Specifically, it should help the student understand the nature and composition of trade between the U.S. and the rest of the world and constraints imposed on management in heterogeneous international environments.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

1. Describe the political and economic systems in use around the world and discuss the cultural and behavioral environments facing multinational business.

2. Explain a government's rationale for influencing or intervening in trade and identify different forms of trade control.

3. Discuss the terms and definitions of foreign exchange including the role of convertibility in transactions and describe how the foreign exchange market works.

4. Describe the International Monetary Fund and its role in the determination of exchange rates.

5. Describe the considerations that firms should explore when entering into international contractual arrangements with other companies.

6. Explain the special control challenges of foreign operations.

7. Discuss the valid marketing philosophies for different firms in varying international situations and contrast the practices of standardized and differentiated programs.

8. Describe various facets of the multinational finance function and illustrate how this function fits in the organizational structure of the multinational enterprise.

9. Identify and assess the value of individual skills, multidisciplinary skills, language resources, career opportunities, professional associations, education and training that lead to a successful career in international business.

10. Incorporate international civil aviation as a model; determine the techniques, skills, technology, agreements, and partnerships that can improve the security, efficiency, regularity and operational safety of international aviation.
