MGT 705. International Business Leadership. 3 Credit Hours.

Given today's extensive and intensive global interaction, a lack of understanding or misunderstanding of why our trading partners (or antagonists) behave as they do makes it difficult to successfully deal with them.

It traces the history of the business systems of Britain, Germany, Japan, and where relevant, those of emerging nations such as China, India and Mexico. We attempt to place matters in proper perspective and to gain a greater awareness of what our implicit and explicit beliefs are, why we espouse them, often unshakably, and in what light our ideologies, policies and actions might be perceived by the Japanese, Germans, Britons or Chinese.
