Academic Courses

(for a total of 6 credits)

  • INTB 5100 - Special Topics in International Business (3 credits)
    • This course aims to apply the conceptual framework acquired in International Business. This will be done from the unique perspective of exploring one of the most economically and politically thriving countries in South America. The class will include discussions on how Costa Rica, one of the smallest countries in South America, benefits socioeconomically from its political stability and public safety, to become one of the main touristic destinations and agribusiness hubs in the region. The obtained insights from the Costa Rican case will be informative and generalizable to other contexts for all students with an interest in International Business. Through business visits, briefings, and overall on-site interactions, the material learned in preparatory lectures will be strengthened and complemented. 
  • ROML 3000 - Topic in Romance Languages (taught in English) (3 credits)
    • The course will focus on Central American culture, history and literature.
