This course is intended to offer students an international experiential learning opportunity. Students will be place into international teams, which will consist of students from different institutions in different countries. These international teams will be given a real organizational problem to solve. Each teams will begin their group work using virtual collaboration technologies and will finish the work face-to-face with their team in the host country. This opportunity affords the students a deep learning and insight into the differences between the cultures, as well as a first-hand appreciation for unique business problems and practices. The learning objectives of this course will be realized through a mix of assigned reading, lecture, independent research, and teamwork. The course will conclude with travel to the host organization to finish the teamwork face-to-face and to present the final project to the organization. Travel is not required to participate in this course. If the student is not able to travel, they can complete the project work through the use of virtual collaboration technology.
