International Business


International Business is an introductory Business class that will cover basic business topics from a global perspective. We will introduce topics from geography to culture, global business that can be used for future business class. This course is designed to help students develop the appreciation, knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to live and work in a global marketplace.

Special Notes:

This course requires stable Internet.


Did you know that McDonald’s serves hamburgers in S.E. Asia on black hamburger buns? They might serve sushi and rice in some areas of the world as well. You will never see Mc Donald’s serving those foods in America, but it is popular in other parts of the world.

Have you ever thought about what business is? You offer a product or service and someone buys it; that’s business - right? But just suppose you live in one country and you would like to offer your services or products in another country. Can’t you just start doing business in that country?

No. It would be wonderful if it were that easy, but there are myriads of hurdles before you can even make that first business transaction in another country.

My class, International Business, will explore the complexities of conducting business worldwide. We will explore everything from finances, trade relations, legal agreements, global organizations, and regional integration. We will gain a greater understanding of how a country’s political stability and culture will influence how you conduct business in their country. We will look at the logistics and marketing you might need from one country to the next.

I hope to see you see in my International Business Class!

Student Feedback

The discusions were interesting and engaging.


I really like how all of the concepts in this course can be used later in life especially if I ever, for instance, were to own my own business or work for an international company.


I really thought that the format of the course was well-made into the sections that you gave me. I enjoyed how you split up the lessons into five or six sections. I also enjoyed that you gave us a little quiz before every test to help refresh us.
