Module Overview:

• Assess the different factors that are critical to international versus domestic business.

Driven by a number of important forces including the elimination of previous barriers to trade and technological advances, the resulting gains in international trade have had an important impact on many features of countries across the world, including jobs, incomes, and cultures. This phenomenon, often called globalization, is an integral topic needing careful consideration in modern business environments.

"I define globalization as the inexorable integration of markets, transportation systems, and communication systems to a degree never witnessed before - in a way that is enabling corporations, countries, and individuals to reach around the world farther, faster, deeper, and cheaper than ever before, and ina way that is enabling the world to reach into corporations, countries, and individuals farther, faster, deeper, and cheaper than ever before" (Friedman, 2002, p. 3, from "Longitudes and Attitudes").

Today, it is more important than ever for a well-educated business professional to understand the possibilities for extending business into foreign markets. This module provides an examination of some basic concepts in international business. You will begin your course project in this module by selecting a country of choice to study. You will investigate the many dimensions of that country's international business environment such as economic conditions, financial system, cultural issues, and unique marketing considerations.
