Course Goal and Objectives: United States business is intertwined with the world economy as never before. A majority of the products in our lives have at least one component from another country. Competition is often global, and firms, large and small have become international in their sales, production, investment, financing and sourcing. Foreign competition has devastated some industries, fundamentally changed others and seriously challenged even the “best”. Technological advances in communication and a breakdown of regulatory barriers have connected financial markets across borders and revolutionized the financial services industry. In short, for better or worse, the business world you will enter when you graduate is a “globalized.” As such, this course is the foundation for further business studies and employment. The goal of this course is to: Gain an understanding of globalization and on the ongoing debate. Examine the social, political and economic influences on corporate strategy and structure.
