About The Course
BUSA 4105: International Business
This 3 credit hour course is designed for a cross-discipline of majors, including, but not limited to business, education, arts, and social sciences. Students will most importantly gain an understanding of global economics, current events related to U.S.-Belize relations, and differentiate between international and domestic business. They will understand "Economic Freedom Index" and how it affects international business as well as engage in an international business case competition.
