Drawing on our extensive experience with offering MBA and university level courses on various topics, they offer varying degrees of mastery of complex topics impacting on the regulation of international business transactions and companies operating within these environments.

Trade policy and trade negotiations for dummies:

This course targets government officials and organized business practitioners embarking on trade negotiations. It draws a distinction between different approaches to trade policy, best thought of as an extension of domestic economic policy, and trade negotiations, which are reciprocal in nature. We review the theory and practice behind both, drawing on our extensive practical experience in real world processes.
