ENTR 57540 International Entrepreneurship

This course will provide an overview of the unique circumstances face by small, often young, businesses that decide to "go global" or are "born global." The objective of this course is to provide students with an understanding of the theory and application of global entrepreneurship, with particular emphasis on overcoming what the literature identifies as three major barriers to the internationalization of entrepreneurial firms: lack of foreign market knowledge, limited human and financial resources, and inherent weaknesses in strategic decision-making. Topics covered include an overview of the international business environment, market/production location selection, financing the global entrepreneurial venture, creating a business proposal, market entry strategies, and international corporate entrepreneurship. Students will be expected to demonstrate understanding of these concepts and issues through various applications. Lab fee may be required.
