International Business Immersion --- This course offers an opportunity for students to explore the business and policy environment of a country or region in depth. The course consists of three distinct parts: (1) campus-based learning about the target country's business and policy environment; (2) intensive travel and direct engagement with business and government leaders to gather information for a team-project research topic (travel done over winter break); and (3) analysis and synthesis of your findings in the form of group projects. These will be presented as business/policy briefs, as well as presentations to the Ross community. The campus-based learning, which takes place during Winter A, involves readings, discussions, guest speakers, and research on the focus country. Projects will explore a specific business or policy issue in the focus country.
