Int'l Faculty-Led Program Info Session: PSU Faculty-Led Germany: Innovation for Sustainability - Germany Field Study

What makes a business great?  In this course, the answer is that the firm consistently achieves legitimacy by adding value to a large web of stakeholders. 

In this two-week field study in the Baden-Wurttemberg region of Germany, students will use the lens of business practices in a successful and prosperous region of Germany as a model for contrast and comparison to U.S. companies through a critical analysis of the role of business in its environment.  Through partnering with Nurtingen-Geislingen University to put on this program, participants will have the chance to travel and learn with students from both Germany and Mexico. During their time together, participants will explore the interrelationships of legal, technological, economic, political and social forces within the business context in Germany in order to better understand these same relationships in the U.S. Participants will discover opportunities and obligations that exist in the business environment and learn how global and local companies innovate to meet the obligations and leverage the opportunities.  Students may enroll as BA 385 or as MGMT 410 with a few slightly different assignments for each.
