BUS 610G - Managing in a Global Environment


Globalization is a force breaking down barriers to the exchange of goods and services between nations, and as a consequence, forcing greater cultural awareness and sensitivity between people. As more and more barriers come down, it becomes imperative that managers possess a global business perspective, which includes not just awareness of institutions, but also the customs and practices of different nations in order to be competitive in such an environment. The overarching objective of this class is to prepare future managers to face such a business world. We see how diverse cultures, laws, languages, and financial structures, among other things, add to the complexity of putting together and managing international business ventures of every type. The firms we talk about likely operate domestically and internationally, thus demanding of managers ever more timely and relevant knowledge, and forcing them to expose their companies (themselves, too) to ever more risk, while at the same time generating far more possibilities for profitability and growth than what we might term ‘bounded’ firms. This course is not open to Business Administration BA/BS, Accounting BS, and Masters of Accounting majors.
