OPER 8044 International Entrepreneurship (Spring: 3 )
The process of launching a venture, or working for a start-up is exciting and overwhelming. Operating the business on an international level brings with it complexity, exhilaration and, even, frustration. During the semester, we will examine more than ten countries, and analyze operations at different entrepreneurial process stages. Some will end up becoming (or already are) public corporations, larger rivals will acquire others, and some will cease operations. We'll discuss market entry, alliances, negotiations, managing growth and financing. Support from local governments, and the cultural, ethical, and human resource issues facing the entrepreneur will also be touched upon.
