This program provides a comprehensive overview of conducting business internationally through two courses: 1) International Business, and 2) International Business Law. The International Business course examines how to successfully manage a business in an international context, and the strategies that managers can pursue to capitalize upon the opportunities and mitigate the threats of doing business globally. The International Business Law course next examines the international business legal environment, including an overview of international laws and organizations, and the global regulation of businesses.

This program begins with several live online sessions, introducing you to the fundamentals of international business and law. The course then continues abroad in Paris – offering students an in-depth understanding of conducting business in a global environment and the legal frameworks that govern such activities. The program will feature visits to multinational companies, the International Court of Arbitration, and cultural sites of interest.
