IBS221 Trade and Finance in a Global Economy

The course builds on the core Economics and International Business subjects and aims to introduce students to global theories of trade and finance and practice from an in-depth international managerial perspective. The central questions of the subject are: 'what underlying themes and principles of Economics, Trade and Finance impact directly on International Business practice?' and 'what tools are available to IB managers to enhance their organisation's performance in the Global Economy?' The course is an essential course of study for students wishing to embark on a management career in a trading organisation, large or small. An in-depth understanding of International Trade Theory is integral to successful international business strategies. This course examines the emergence of the Global Marketplace and the implications for trade and finance in an ever more borderless world.
