Evidence of the globalization of business is all around us. Businesses not only have customers and
suppliers in different countries, they also have operations in multiple countries to meet varying
customer requirements, to make use of human resources, or to reduce costs. This course focuses on
the issues one needs to consider to be effective in the global environment. Ideally, every business
student would have the opportunity to experience business, political and cultural differences by living
abroad for an extensive period of time. Because this is impractical for many students, this course
attempts to provide some of this experience during a two-week tour to China.
