General Course Purpose

Students will gain an understanding of the opportunities and issues in emerging and developed countries, their business environment and practices, and consumer demands for products and services in those countries. The course emphasizes development of ability to analyze global data from a variety of sources, such as financial, customer, social media, video, voice, text, machine data and other structured and unstructured data. The typical work environment of businesses and professional organizations requires people to work as team members to critically analyze difficult issues and arrive at a common resolution. Collaborative learning makes it easy for teams of learners to bring a variety of talents to bear on problems. Because they have different talents, perspectives, diverse experiences and backgrounds, team members together can solve problems that they could not solve alone.
