Global Economy, Business, and Society

1 required CU

Courses in this category reflect the varied ways in which the global nature of the business landscape affects business practices.  These courses have a strong international focus, with an emphasis on analyzing and understanding the impact of national and international organizations, economic policies, politics, and culture on business practices, societal concerns, and stakeholder relationships across countries. Through these courses, students gain insight into the interconnectedness of the world as well as its local and regional variation.

Global Economy, Business, and Society courses may not be counted toward any other requirement and must be taken for a letter grade, not pass/fail. Students should wait until sophomore year or later to take these courses. Only the courses below may be used to satisfy this requirement (no petitions will be considered).
