授業の概要 Course Overview


International Relations (IR) takes as its focus the complex relationships among sovereign states. As future leaders in international business, students should understand key concepts in IR to help them navigate issues of power, interdependence and human rights that arise in multi-national business. The course aims to support the school’s mission of creating ‘innovative and ethical leaders” by introducing students to diverse perspectives on these concepts and asking them to evaluate them in support of their own positions.
