Globalization and Emerging Powers – Understanding Challenges and Opportunities     
This course provides students that are interested in pursuing a career across borders (especially in business and international organizations) a comprehensive base of knowledge, skills and tools to understand the potential of emerging economies - Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East, with a special emphasis on the BRICS countries. A critical understanding of the economic development of emerging markets, combined with knowledge of the increasingly complex world economy, enables better exploitation of career opportunities in world markets. Students will apply the theories learned by analyzing managerial processes through case discussions of organizations and ventures operating in different emerging markets and sectors of the economy. More specifically, they will get acquainted with the emerging economies from three major perspectives: market potential; trading opportunities; and global competition.
