CSUF: Business Honors in Europe, Winter Session 2019
Students will explore topics related to International Economics, supported by local program partners in London, Paris and Rome!
Program Dates: Depart, January 2- Return January 17, 2019
Course and Faculty
ECON 335: International Economics
International Economics looks at the general theory, practice and institutions of the international economy, discussing topics such as international trade and investment, balance of payments, foreign exchange rates, multi-national enterprise, and international economic policy. Using a study abroad experience in Europe, this particular class is designed to help students become especially familiar with the various economic aspects of the European Union.
The coursework will combine lectures from Dr. Lorenzo Bizzi with programming and site visits related to course themes. Students are expected to gain a broad understanding of international economics, as well as a solid understanding of the complex economic, cultural, and strategic relationships among the three host countries, the European Union and Eurozone, and the United States.
All course-related discussions will be conducted in English.
There will not be a standard textbook for the class. However, readings associated with various topics will be assigned and access will be made available via Titanium.
Because this course involves international travel, there will be required pre-travel elements. Such elements will include orientations on international travel requirements and some cultural awareness.
Quizzes and exams must be completed as scheduled. Due to the nature of this course, make-up exams are not given.
Instructor Classroom Management Procedures
Because they are such an important part of the experience and course, lectures and site visits are mandatory. Active, consistent participation is required for success in this course. Five points will be deducted for each absence or tardy (more than 15 minutes) to lectures or site visits.
