Course Overview

Course Introduction

Globalization has become the buzzword in the last decade as an increasing number of companies are going international with their products and services. The question is: Are they fully prepared and truly ready to become corporate global citizens? Ernest Gundling, author of Leading Across New Borders, shares his experience of the international market in diverese business domains.
In this course, you will find discussions on how the global market is changing and the ethical concerns global organizations should consider, including legal and environmental issues. You will understand ways in which organizations can become more inclusive by challenging assumptions and taking inputs from people in non-traditional positions. Gundling will talk about the need on a global level for individuals with multiple skill sets. He will discuss global innovation that requires a deep understanding of the consumer, and the ability to “style shift” when necessary in order to work in different environments.
