Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course is designed to help participants develop an understanding of a business economy abroad. The course is intended to improve your understanding of key macro-environmental differences across a specific region and the development of the necessary skills for effective cross-cultural communications and global business management outside of the United States. Course deliverables include speakers and on site company visits in the host country. Additionally, there will be visits of cultural sites and activities.

This course has been taught for multiple years as a special topics course.  It is offered during the summer as part of Poole's study abroad programs. The goal is to formalize the course and continue to offer it so students can explore the culture and business climate of the country they are studying in. The course objectives will remain the same in each section, but the course itself and content will be tailored to the country that the students are studying in - different programs are located in different countries (e.g., China, Argentina, Italy).
