Course Description
This course is designed to develop an understanding of the expanding need for businesses to think and respond with an international focus. Emphasis is placed on recognizing the forces of globalization, the factors to consider when moving into new markets, and the methods by which firms decide to compete in these foreign markets. Attention is given to developing an analysis and appreciation of at least one country/region of the world with regard to its geography, people, history and the associated business risks within this environment. Sensitivity to other cultures is expanded, while students are encouraged to think of their career in the context of a global path.  (prereq: none)
