International business is characterised by rapid changes and the growing importance of international markets. The continuous removal of barriers to trade and investment, the growth of international strategic alliances, major technological advances and falling communications costs, the growth of e-commerce, improvements in transportation and logistics, and the increasing globalisation of business are opening up new opportunities for businesses ranging from one-person operations to corporate giants. With a viable product or service, even the smallest business can now find potential customers and means of distribution across the globe.
This programme focuses on how businesses should organise their international operations. You will analyse their environment and learn how and where companies can expand their activities. You will also learn to take economic, legal, financial and management processes and decisions into account.
This exchange programme is part of the International Business programme at the Avans School of International Studies in Breda.
