The course is a combination of lectures, case analyses, and site visits. Lectures by Rhodes and University of Antwerp faculty as well as European Union officials on international business including strategy, finance, marketing and management within the context of the European Union will form the basis for written case analyses and oral presentations. Following case completion, students will visit business sites for discussion of the businesses’ strategies and performances with firm officials. Students enrolled in this course will be required to complete detailed and sophisticated case analyses drawing upon prerequisite course work as well as course lectures. The course is offered in Antwerp, Belgium. Cases and site visits will vary from year to year. BUS 483 may be used as one of the two required electives for a business or economics/business major. Open only by application and acceptance to the program.
