Special Topic: “ Argentina: Global Impacts on Business & Technology”
This 4390 upper division elective is a special topics course dealing with the impact of Latin America as an emerging economic player in the global business arena. The student is introduced to a wide range of topics pertaining to the economic and technical implications of Latin America and to the business use of information technology on a global scale. We will arrange group outings to experience the business climate of the city and its culture.
The class will meet during the fall semester only on Mondays from 5:30-6:45 p.m. The second half of the course will be conducted in Buenos Aires for a week in January around the 3rd to the 10th. We are planning various plant tours and field trips around the city so it should be very interesting.
