Global Business and Diplomacy

In the increasingly interconnected world, geopolitical events, trade policy, natural disasters and public perception have a powerful impact on a firm’s success. Business leaders need to be aware of, and anticipate, the consequences of world events and understand the interface between business and political environment. Through a series of seminars, exercises and discussions, students in this course will be exposed to key concepts of political and economic diplomacy and its influence on operations of businesses. Experts in the field of international business, diplomacy and trade will provide their insight through weekly discussions.
