BUS-3265 Off-Shore Investment

3 credits

Prerequisite: BUS-3230 or permission of instructor.

The general purpose of this course is to expose students to the workings of international finance. Specific learning objectives will cover three basic areas of study. First there will be major concentration on business ethics as related to international and off-shore investment. Second, the methods and laws that allow for off-shore investment and tax sheltering will be examined. Third, international competition in tax law as balanced against a nation's right to legal sovereignty will be examined. Finally, and of no less import, the students will be exposed to a culture where race is almost nonexistent. As north Americans, we often see things through a racial filter. It is interesting to experience a culture where this is not done. This part of the course will be done by observation and class discussion.
