4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The main objective of this course is to gain knowledge and understanding of the process of internationalization - globalization - of the national economies, the different industrial segments and the enterprises. We will identify the factors that have shaped the current “global economy”, pointing out both the advantages and the potential threats and dangers, which affect economic agents in all countries, both at the macro- and the micro-economic level.
A simple but solid theoretical framework for the study of international trade and international finance will be provided, revising the main theories currently been used. We will also discuss to what extent the current process of “globalization” and the “information revolution” modify the classical models and explanations of the dynamics of the world economy, and the national economies, with particular reference to Europe and Spain.
We will then centre on how firms gain access to the world markets, the different modes of entry, and whether any “local enterprise” can become a “global corporation”. The different legal and financial instruments available to firms for export promotion and joint-ventures with foreign companies will be revised.

Finally, we will study the dynamics and the pattern of the “globalization” upon Spain, with a particular emphasis on the Andalusian economy.
