Top Summer Courses in International Business

A summer course is a type of class offered  during the summer months. They might be available between May and September in the Northern Hemisphere, or between November and February in the Southern. There are many different options out there.

Often, students ask, "What is a summer course in international business?" This kind of class focuses on commercial issues that transcend national borders. Students may learn about trade, imports and exports, international regulations, macroeconomics, globalization, taxation, or tariffs. They might also study differences in corporate culture around the world. Some programs may focus on a specific region or area, while others can have a more general focus. This is an excellent choice for students with a business background who want to learn more about global commerce, or those with experience in international studies who want to learn more about business.

A number of advantages can be derived from a class in international business. For example, students can learn more about the global economy and may improve their critical thinking, cross-cultural communication, and leadership skills. These abilities are all highly valued by employers.

Students should be aware that the cost of summer courses can vary. Each school's financial office will have more information on educational expenses.

Taking a summer course in international business can lead to a wide range of potential career opportunities. Students may be able to fill a wide variety of positions within organizations of all sizes; they may find work as assistants, consultants, analysts, associates, or managers. Some may go on to work in large, multinational corporations, while others might become advisors for more local companies. Entrepreneurial students may decide to launch their own businesses.

Some courses in international business may be offered in person, while others are taught online. Just search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This course focuses on the growth and management of global enterprises from the emergence of the modern multinational to the present day. In studying the dynamics of international business we take these enterprises (commonly referred to as MNEs, MNCs or TNCs) as our key actors, and use an interdisciplinary approach to assess the challenges associated with developing strategies and managing operations across national boundaries. We explore, therefore, the interplay between the multinational enterprise, the countries in which it does business, and the competitive environment in which it operates. This approach will ensure that global enterprise is framed in a wide political, social, historical and economic context.... [-]
