Management in a Global Context (3 credits)

William PolushinInstructor: william.polushin [at] (William Polushin)

Managing in a Global Context was designed to provide students with a solid understanding of the contemporary issues facing industry in the global economy, and an appreciation of how companies - whether they are based in North or South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia - may respond to these challenges in a way that will lead to sustained sales and earnings growth.

Global Branding (3 credits)

Instructor: Robert Mackalski 

Brands are some of the most valuable assets that a company has. Yet the marketing of brands is changing. Companies increasingly recognize that future growth will come from international and emerging markets. Major brands are often lightening rods for anti-globalization protests. Rivalry for customer loyalty in individual markets—as well as at the global level—is intensifying, especially in a volatile international climate. In Global Branding we enhance our understanding and appreciation of brands and global brands. We develop theories, models, and tools to improve our ability to create and evaluate local and global brand strategies.

Each course has 39 contact hours granting three (3) North American credits, equivalent to six (6) ECTS credits. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure their home university will grant transfer credits.
