IBUS 4316/5316 - Field Study in International Business
This course requires an international trip which provides students an opportunity to explore firsthand the international dimensions of business, to identify and pursue strategic issues in the international business, and to gain an awareness of how cultural, economic, political and legal environments influence business practices. Students study and conduct research on the country and prepare a report detailing business and cultural practices, political, and economic environments prior to travel. Upon return, students prepare a written summery of their experiences and compare expectations prior to the field study with the realities of international business. Students will also prepare a marketing plan on a product/service to be offered in the visiting country. Students will bear the cost of airfare, lodging, and meals. Three credit hours.
