Landscape and Challenges of International Business

This course presents an integrated overview of international business environment and its related issues. Although you will deepen and leverage your already existing general knowledge about the world, this course will always come back to the reasons why it matters to know the global risks for a company. At the end of the day, being a business manager means being able to take risks, and being a successful manager means being equipped with the right knowledge and analytical tools to manage risks.

This course intents to make you develop some skills that are truly useful to become an international business analyst.

We will develop content, we will always use a data-savvy approach, and we will use tools such as the data analytics Tableau software. Licenses will be provided on the first day of class.
