Handbook for Introduction International Business

University of Groningen
Prof. Dr. S. Beugelsdijk

Year 2011-2012

Course code: EBP003A05

IMPORTANT NOTE:
This handbook contains a set of questions and answers that can be used as input by teachers involved in the working group meetings. In general, these questions should NOT be communicated to the students beforehand (or afterwards), because they are supposed to write an individual reflection before the class meeting. These questions only serve as useful vehicles to start the class room discussion in the working group meetings, and should only be used by teachers.
