The current century is an age of unprecedented globalisation and economic integration. International economic interdependence is continuously increasing, and firms and their managers must be aware of the impact of this situation and the competitive forces it generates on the profitability and sustainability of their business. International Economics and Trade is an exciting and dynamic subject that equips students with the tools with which they can tackle important and complex real-world issues in this age of globalisation and financial integration.

National economies cannot function well in isolation from incidents in other national economies; global interdependence now characterizes national and international affairs. In this course, the issues of international economics and international trade are widely discussed for better understanding of trade and economic relations among the nations as well as barriers and opportunities of trade and investment flows. Students will develop a broad vision of international economics and its likely future challenges as well as practical skills in strategic analysis.
