GBUS 492 - Law, Business&Entrepreneurship
This is a practical course to help you succeed in international projects and activities. It’s taught by a practicing attorney with 30 years of experience in international business and introduces basic concepts and useful tools in law, business, microfinance, and entrepreneurship. It’s like a Swiss Army Knife for international professionals. Students will create a new company and a business plan and present them to class. International activities are a seamless web of law, business, and policy. So, an understanding of key concepts, transactions, and the language used in law, business, and finance is essential. This is true whether you are working with governments and the public sector or with corporations, NGOs or microfinance. The course includes:
•	key legal and business concepts and transactions
•	creating contracts
•	negotiation strategies 
•	types of business structures and international organizations
•	typical international agreements
•	raising capital and microfinance
•	social and other entrepreneurship
•	types of intellectual property and how to protect them
•	ethics in international transactions and
•	creating a new company and presenting it and a business plan to class. 
Some experience with basic financial concepts such as a balance sheet and cash flow statements is useful but not essential. The course uses entrepreneurship exercises to give you an understanding of how companies are formed and operate, and how they approach transactions. This can help you deal more successfully with the business community and others in international transactions.
