3. Course contents *

This course focuses on the following question: What is the conceptual framework that can be developed for the study of the internal and external environment of the enterprise and what are the international and European dimensions of the environmental factors (economic factors, cultural, legal, social and political)? Next, we examine the theory, policy and functioning of the international economic system and the international economic institutions: theory, policy and institutions. These insights form the basis for the development of the conceptual framework of the European economic and political integration, whereupon the evolution of this integration and the major policy areas can be examined.
