Program Description:
This course focuses on managerial decision making and stakeholder analysis in the context of a foreign culture, thus providing students the opportunity to understand how culture influences managerial practice.  Specifically, the course examines the role of managers as decision makers in a foreign context.  Students will learn about the concepts of managerial decision making, and how culturally conditioned values, attitudes, beliefs and norms of behavior influence managerial and decision making styles.  Students will have an opportunity to explore these concepts further in Scotland where they will learn about the management of an historic educational residential estate focused on fiscal and environmental sustainability as well as a local golf course, whisky distillery, oil company and bakery supply business.  In addition students will visit cultural heritage sites; travel to different cities to learn more about Scotland; have an opportunity to play golf at St. Andrews and Edzell golf courses.  Students will also engage in a hands-on work project at the estate which is a charitable trust.
