Global and Experiential Programs
Today, entrepreneurs working in high-growth, technology-based industries must be fluent in global business issues, including intellectual property, global markets, sourcing and supply chains, intercultural management, and communication. International experiences also can benefit entrepreneurs who plan to serve the U.S. market primarily; the increasing diversity of the U.S. population requires cross-cultural expertise in the development and marketing of new products and services for the domestic market.
