       Bilbao: Global Economics

          Conducted in English

This dynamic course is a basic introduction to major issues in global business. It identifies common global problems in specific areas such as international economics, finance, marketing, and management. A core class for business students, this course is also appropriate for curious students of other disciplines looking to be well-versed in the field of international business. 

Located in the picturesque Basque country of northern Spain, 45 minutes from the famous beaches of San Sebastian and an hour away from France, Bilbao is an ideal site for students who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding of international business. The poster city for successful urban renovation, Bilbao has transformed itself dramatically over the last decade into a cutting-edge, cosmopolitan banking and service center with world-class museums and art galleries, gleaming subways, futuristic music halls, and a modern airport. Situated in the foothills of a beautiful green mountain range facing the ocean, where it is possible to hike in the morning and go swimming in the afternoon, this is a wonderful place to live and study.
