About This Program

This is an introductory international business course open to students of all backgrounds of study. The emphasis will be on understanding various issues in international business with an emphasis on Europe and the area’s trading relationships in the global economy.

Undergraduate – MGMT 3901: Topics in Management – International Business, Europe

  • 3 credit hours; graded S/U; no prerequisites
  • Business students: this course may be used to directly satisfy a requirement for BSBA graduation requirements. Consult with your academic advisor on any questions about how this course would satisfy your degree requirements.

Graduate – BUS_AD 8730: International Study Abroad – International Business, Europe

  • 3 credit hours; graded S/U; graduate standing required
  • Graduate students will complete additional requirements for the elective credit (this will be explained in pre-departure classes). MBA and Accountancy students – consult your academic advisor on how this course would satisfy degree requirements.
  • These courses were designed by the Registrar’s Office as spring courses. Educational fees for three credit hours are costs you would normally see on your spring bill. Non-resident students will pay the usual non-resident fees. Actual fees for the spring semester are set by the Board of Curators during their April meeting. Let your academic advisor know if these three credits will put you over your maximum for spring. All students should check with their academic advisors on how this course would satisfy graduation and major area requirements. The course will be conducted in two parts:
  1. Eight pre-departure classes at MU that will lay the groundwork for principles of international business with some focus on the business strategies and cultural dimensions of Germany and Spain.
  2. A two-week international travel experience which includes experiential learning exercises, group discussions and presentations, and company visits. The visits are an essential part of the learning experience and allow students to discuss with company managers international business strategies in marketing, finance, and management. The schedule while abroad allows free time for sightseeing and visiting local cultural and historic sites.
