International Business

Welcome to the International Business course at New World University.

In this course you’ll explore the exciting world of international business. International business relates to any situation where the production or distribution of goods or services crosses country borders. Globalisation—the shift toward a more interdependent and integrated global economy—creates greater opportunities for international business. Such globalisation can take place in terms of markets, where trade barriers are falling and buyer preferences are changing. It can also be seen in terms of production, where a company can source goods and services easily from other countries.

This course relies with our gratitude on the second edition of Challenges and Opportunities in International Business by Mason A. Carpenter and Sanjyot P. Dunung, and as such its long form readings are released under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License.
