Overview of the Program:
The course explores the world of business in a globalized setting. It will specifically look at the role that culture plays in the global business environment of today. How does it show up? How does it affect business strategies and planning? What are the challenges that today’s businesses are facing in serving numerous cultures? The course will look at companies that have successfully and unsuccessfully dealt with the cultural context in their business. It will explore different cultural models and theories that attempt to describe and help bridge the gaps between cultures. This will be achieved through reading texts, studying current trends and class discussion. Students will also partake in a supplemental English course developed to strengthen their English skills.Students will be able to participate in a variety of evening and weekend activities such as a Mississippi River tour (Mississippi National River and Recreation Area), Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minnesota History Center, Mall of America, Minnesota State Capitol Building, Saint Paul Basilica, Saint Paul Saints Baseball game, Shopping at Albertville Outlet Mall, Bowling, Lake Calhoun visit, and the Como Park Zoo & Conservatory. If there is ever inclement weather then other trips or activities will be substituted. We also have on-campus activities (BBQ, volleyball, etc.).
