3 cr.

Course Description

The forces of globalization under way today offer many new avenues of contact, linking together economies and cultures at an unprecedented pace. This course takes a look at emerging markets of the developing world, where exciting new growth opportunities are accompanied by serious challenges stemming from poverty, inadequate infrastructure, poor governance, and cultural barriers. We will incorporate insights from the social sciences as we seek to better understand and interpret the wide range of experiences with development and chart what new directions these societies are heading.
