Emerging Markets, Minor

The minor in emerging markets introduces students to the challenges and opportunities that face companies in countries that are rapidly developing into more developed world economies. Students have an opportunity to combine course work that explores the dynamics of conducting business and generating innovations in emerging markets with a summer field project on-site in an area of the world where markets are rapidly developing. This interdisciplinary minor is open to business and nonbusiness students.
