About This Course

Evidence-based global management explores how traditional management theory and concepts apply in the global context.

The world around us has never felt so small. Modern telecommunications and affordable long distance travel have exposed people to different cultures, and created unprecedented opportunities for globally-minded organizations. However, the risks of globalization are enormous, and costly mistakes and failure are more common than success.
