Annotation:

The course introduces students of the technical university to the social determinants of international

business. It does that predominantly by comparing the physical, institutional and social environments

of individual countries and key regions of the world economy. Students get to know about different

religions and cultures, necessary for doing business in diverse societies as well as indexes of

economic freedom, corruption and economic development, which are needed for the right

investment decision. Seminars help to improve the knowledge in the form of discussions

based on individual readings.
