FREN 334 - International Business French

4 credits
France is the second largest economy in the European Union which is the most important trading block of the United States. Given this context and the use of French in various other business situations in Francophone countries, this course aims at enhancing French oral and written skills related to the world of business, economics and finance. A cross-cultural training prepares students for a week-long mid-semester trip to Québec where they practice their French and meet with representatives of the French-speaking Canadian business community. (Extra-costs borne by the students are room and board at off-campus site). Assignments include oral presentations of articles and short response papers on topics discussed in class. Final projects include the simulation of a French job interview and case studies of social entrepreneurship in French-speaking Africa. Prerequisite FREN 310 [old FREN 104a/b] or Instructor’s Signature. CLA-Off Campus Experience
