Global Focus - Asia

This course offers students an opportunity to focus on the Asian business environment within an innovative and flexible framework that combines traditional classroom-based learning with structured, rigorous in-country experiential learning. Focusing on emerging markets in terms of development, economy, growth, and philosophies in a multi-cultural setting, the challenges and opportunities of these dynamic markets are addressed. The pragmatic aspects of doing business abroad, such as cultural differences, resource availability, legal and economic framework, technology, and marketing issues are explored through classroom discussion, in-country company and government site visits, lectures from Asian educators and business leaders, and consulting project client interaction. Effective communication and ethical decision making under the umbrella of the global challenge are addressed.
