Global Business Perspectives
This innovative course enables all first-semester business students to dive into the Sigmund Weis School experience. Students are divided into teams to tackle a business case study involving a publicly traded company. They research and analyze it, and develop recommendations to further its success. Upperclass business students volunteer as mentors.
The course culminates with a team multi-media presentation before a panel of visiting executives from the region.
The Wow Factor
Early in their college career, students experience the highs and lows of how the global business world operates. They recognize the decision-making challenges that business managers face in a competitive environment. They also develop team-building and presentation skills that employers value.
This first-year course also satisfies the Perspectives goal by introducing students to strategies for college success. They learn time management and research skills, in addition to discovering resources available to Susquehanna students.
