About the Program

The course will provide business owners, managers, senior executives and directors, VPs, and entrepreneurs in various stages of venture development the working knowledge and practical tools to explore, launch, and develop new business opportunities beyond the firm’s domestic operations. Learn how “going global” happens in various stages, and how the potential success and risks of engaging in commercial enterprise in global markets are affected by a wide range of unique issues that must be expertly coordinated at both the Operations and Strategic levels for the business.


If you work for a firm that is already doing some form of global business, this is an excellent overview and will immediately introduce and address key issues that may have already happened, are currently unfolding, or are “still-to-come” in the future. If your firm is considering an initial move into global business at some level as an extension to your existing business, this is your vital prep course to master these unique issues.
