Program Description:
HSB Grad International SeminarParis Studio Abroad
Course Description:
As one of the most iconic cities in the world, Paris evokes powerful and romantic images – the Eiffel Tower, Arch de Triumph, the Champs Elysee, the Latin Quarter nestled against the Seine, sidewalk cafés and baguettes. Yet, this city of 2.2 million people is much more. It is a center of government, commerce, and the economic and cultural heart of France. In turn, as a member of the “Group of 7” leading industrialized countries, France has the world’s ninth largest, and the European Union’s second largest economies by purchasing power. France is home to 31 of the 500 biggest global companies. It is also home to distinct cultural products, traditions and the number one tourist destination in the world.

The focus of this international seminar is on how this complex, advanced and industrialized country preserves and promotes its own unique business culture while navigating its membership in the European Union and its important role in a global marketplace.

This course is designed to be an intensive and immersive learning experience. The specific objectives are for students to:
  • Be exposed to the fundamentals of doing business in France
  • Examine the dynamics of the European Union and common Euro currency on the business environment in France
  • Apply basic international business concepts to understanding specific business environments
  • Explore the importance of cultural/historical/environmental context in international business
  • Learn about the impact of law and private international dispute resolution on the business environment.
