BA International Trade

BA International Trade program provides students with multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches in international trade. It represents interactions between economic, strategic, and legal aspects of international trade and international policies. The program provides an understanding of the legal barriers to international trade which provides understanding in this specific business sector. The financial subjects of the study program recognize that the gains from international trade exceed the costs. The program lets the students understand the welfare effects of tariffs and quotas.

Because nation-states have unique government systems, laws and regulations, taxes, obligations, currencies, cultures, practices, etc., International trading is definitely more complex than doing business that operates exclusively on domestic markets.

The main task of international business is to understand the very size of the global market.

The core issues considered by companies and professionals involved in international trade include:

  • Economic environment
  • Political environment
  • Cultural environment a
  • Competitive environment

Study form:

Combined form (Blended learning)

The combined form (Blended learning) is a combination of online study with passing exams and defending project work directly at the academy, or in one of the partner ICC – Information Consultation Centres of the academy. The combined form of study offers flexible learning opportunities that allow you to combine study with work or entrepreneurship. During the study, the student is in direct contact with the teacher via e-mail or via the SEP Online Platform. The online form of study has the character of modern education without regular weekend lectures.

Selection of modules and specialization

The student has several options when choosing modules. The first advantage for the student is the specialization of the program. There are basic (compulsory) modules in every study program. The student determines the specialization by replacing three modules from another study program, e.g., an MBA.
The second option is to change three subjects from the elective subjects, and the third option is to keep the study program unchanged and, thus, only complete the compulsory subjects.

Upon completion of their studies, they will acquire academic skills to enable them to continue their Master – MA International Trade studies.
