Perspectives in Global Management
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Arrive Date: June 20, 2020 End Date: July 17, 2020
Europe, with its cross-border economic dynamics, is an especially good setting for studying global management in action. We will examine how firms develop new ideas and distribute products and services to international markets, and how they respond to changing winds of trade. We will visit ports to see supply chain management in practice, study the International Standards Organization that facilitates cross-border trade, and learn how such trade is financed. Based in historic Edinburgh, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we will also visit London for additional lessons and perspectives on global management, including a visit to Bloomberg’s world headquarters.
