In this course students will learn the main differences between local businesses, exporters/importers and multinational firms. The course starts with an overview of important facts and issues, and of recent trends in local and international businesses. We will discuss some formal definitions of the salient concepts and various factors (incentives) that may lead some local businesses to expand across borders. Students will be able to practice being an economist by working on projects where they apply economic thinking and methods to problems facing local/international businesses and organisations. Each project involves research on a case in a small group, writing a consulting report and presenting the findings.

This course requires active face-to-face participation and attendance in workshops is mandatory.
