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.

Visits to Belizean companies like Beltraide, Belize Tourism Board, Belize Natural Energy, and others give students the opportunity to experience international business first-hand and learn from experts in their field.
