Course description & goals (final competences)

International managers are subject to international as well as local rules for business relationships and transactions. In examining the legal considerations involved in doing business internationally, this course explores the law surrounding international dispute resolution, the international sale of goods, the European Union, The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, the regulation of imports and exports, and a variety of other topics relevant to the legal relationship between businesses and the international community. Participants learn about laws that are different from domestic laws and prepare themselves for careers in which they will do business with foreign countries.
Participants gain an understanding of
- the legal framework for cross-border business transactions; especially the particularities of the European business sphere (EU and EFTA),
- the legal aspects of world trade and the meaning and relevance of the rules of the WTO,
- how international business relationships are influenced by European and global legal frameworks, and
the variety of ways international contracts can be written.
