Did you know that if someone were to simply pocket a business card handed to them by a Japanese executive or forget it into their meeting place, their mutual business would probably be over for good? Or that the United Kingdom has the longest tax code in the world and it is packed with written and unwritten laws to trip up the entrepreneur?
If you have some mighty business ideas that will most likely be held back by the borders of your home country, come and study the fine nuances of International Business Administration!
The curriculum of International Business Administration provides students with the knowledge of essential functionalities of an international company: management, marketing, logistics, accounting, and financial management.
