CORE Course: This course explores challenges facing modern corporations in organizing activities that span multiple national boundaries and cultures. The course examines the inner workings of International Business from a strategic point of view, including the various challenges of operating in a global environment (cultural, economic, operational, and legal). From expansion of operations to foreign nations to successfully managing overseas operations, it is imperative that students have a better understanding of the micro and macro factors that make management of international businesses distinct from domestic businesses. Through experimental learning, case analysis, and individual and group projects, this course will provide students with an understanding of the process of cross-cultural management and the challenges that they face while working in multicultural environments. Core competencies include self-awareness, managing ambiguity and uncertainty, managing intergroup conflict, and cross-cultural communication.
