BUS 459 - Senior Topic: International (4)

Topical areas will be developed including international policy; global alliances; specialization in geographic areas; international economic studies. Spring 2011: Over the last 10 years, US businesses have continued to engage in "off shored" technology development services to improve cost and productivity. The next generation of innovation workers can expect to work for several international companies, with various parts of their organizations in India and China supporting this trend. As we start a new decade, it will be critical for students to gain an understanding of the dynamics driving technology collaboration and innovation with other countries and cultures. This understanding will enable students to better prepare and advance in their own careers ahead. Prerequisite: BUS 350
