Program Description:

This course integrates formal and experiential learning of the knowledge, skills and perspectives required for (a) managing effectively in culturally diverse settings, and (b) managing innovation in global companies.  The focus is on intercultural management applied to the specific field of innovation in traditional industries such as cheese, wine, tourism and aircraft manufacturing.  The highlight (besides free time in Paris) is the visit to the longest single-family owned chateau and vineyards in France.  Here students engage in a hands-on learning experience and make a farmers lunch in the 900 year old farmhouse.  Students will spend 14 days in France, starting in the south of France on the Mediterranean, then travelling to Paris, as well as attend two pre-travel Saturday sessions focused on Global Management and Innovation.  Students will earn three credits for the combined formal classroom, short-term program and hands-on learning component.
