Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Take this course and you will really learn how the business world works in different parts of the planet. Here you will learn how to expand into other domestic markets and why it is beneficial for people and corporations. After this course I guarantee that you will be way more knowledgeable about international business and affairs, while at the same time being more culturally sensitive and savvy.
I now understand better how countries shape their trade policies and how they can engage more actively in international trade. On the other hand, I now also better understand why companies want to expand into other markets, and the reason is because that allows them to not depend on a single nation for their financial success, but rather spread the risks strategically and compensate for their economic loses when the economic situation is tough in one of the markets where they operate.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course you must have an open mind, which will allow you to better understand why people do things differently in other countries. It is also very important to study the materials from the book and pay attention to the instructor because his examples will allow you to better understand the theory and how to apply it to real-life situations. I would also recommend reading foreign newspapers and watching YouTube videos about particular situations in other countries, like why Greece is so indebted, for example.
