Top Master Programs in Business Studies in Asia 2016/2017. The need for an in-depth study of international trade stems from a humble premise that any analysis of economic, political and social implicaitons of exchange between traders in two or more national markets differs from that between traders within a national market. International trade as a means for achieving better international cooperation and economic development is undisputable. Trade relations among countries have evolved through collective debate, negotiations, agreements and on many, varied and complex issues. To strengthen the world economy for a sustainable development of trade, investment, employment and income growth, the need to develop and nurture human resources for such an economic task is indispensable. It is in this respect that AJOU GSIS has taken the cue to train experts and professionals for governments, public institutions, private companies and firms, or individuals, with a view to enhancing their skills and understanding in the field of international trade, to handle the intricacies, issues, and challenges of the world trading system for a better future. Required courses Quantitative Analysis for Business and Economy (Pre-requisite) The main objective of this course is to equip students with the ability to correctly interpret statistical results.

The class covers both theory and case studies and also focus on trade policies and pending trade issues like FTA and WTO.

International Finance : Market and Policy The purpose of this course is to familiarize students with foreign exchange markets and the nature of foreign exchange risk. Topics for the course include the determination of exchange rates, both spot and forward rates, and the arbitrage relationships that link prices and interest rates throughout the world.
