      This course combines one weekly lecture and seminar to ground students in the theories and practices of international Business from a European perspective.

      • It includes a study visit to a EU Multinational Corporation in the region, giving students get face-to-face contact with industry representatives.
      • We also invite Guest Speakers to talk about the challenges of international business in different EU and non-EU contexts.
      • Rather than following a US perspective, the course puts Europe at its centre, as a source and host of International Business (trade or investment).
      • Parts 1 to 3 provide the fundamental theoretical concepts and empirical knowledge that students need to acquire to successfully analyse International Business.
      • Part 4 applies this knowledge through an exploration of EU businesses in the world.
      • The seminars apply the concepts learnt in the theory using different methodologies, including critical reading, class-based discussion of texts and data and direct contact with the business community through a study trip.

      The course has been redesigned as part of the Jean Monnet Chair awarded to the UC: https://www.proyectojeanmonneteu.unican.es/.
