By academic definition, International trade is the exchange of Goods, Service and Capital. Let us explain each one with an example:
We read about 'Thomas Friedman - World is Flat' about 7 years ago, but we realised it when we experienced it in our daily life soon after. When we saw several Indian Firms touching global grounds one after the other, remember the Tata Acquisition of Dutch major Corus in the year 2006?
Internationally, Business houses are no more confined by boundaries of their town, State or even their Country. And there is no reason why they should, when they can catapult their productivity through Free Trade (Bilateral or Multilateral transactions).
Don’t we visit the more economical hypermarkets instead of buying from the expensive local market?. Applying the same ideology across continents gave impetus to the outsourcing industry. Moreover, Advancement in technology has made International trade even more Robust, Economical and faster for organisations than ever before.
Doon Business School through its MIB (Masters In International Business) programme aims to teach the nuances involved in International business. Any Business Manager holding responsibility of a business function in an organization would have to be equipped with the macro level understanding of the world trade, macroeconomics and its impact on all countries involved in the trade. He needs to understand at the micro level export and import policies and procedures of various countries to be able to steer his business ahead in accordance with the existing environment. It is his ability to fore see the risks & rewards involved in any business/trade, assess the impact and manage the risk that is going to be detrimental to the organization’s success.

Gain through Practical Leaning
International business/trade can hardly be understood in its true sense through academics teachings no matter how rigorous. Each student needs to experience it live/happening to completely relate to the issues which can arise while executing it and to be aware of all the nuances involved in a particular business or even in a particular transaction.
Thanks to DBS Location advantage, all DBS-MIB students get exposure to Industries involved in International trade and learn the real operation of it while seeing it live.
