I realized that I was truly a citizen of the world while living in Argentina. I felt very integrated throughout my trip. I had the chance to give back to the community and volunteer. This was the most impactful part of my experience.

Global Supply Chains Management  

Supply chain management (SCM) is becoming more and more important for businesses as the scope to outsource globally increases. Companies now have to deal with emerging countries just beginning to compete in global markets. A supply chain is the network of entities from the raw material supplier at one end, going through the plants, warehouses and distribution centres, to retailers, and sometimes the final customer, at the other end. Supply chain management is the integrated management of the flow and storage of materials, information and funds between the entities comprising the supply chain. The main objective of the supply chain is to create and enhance value as the product, in its intermediate or final form, progresses through the network. Supply chain management is by its very nature an international (global) discipline.



International Economics  

The International Economics module provides an understanding of the key economic issues in the global business environment. The course provides an understanding of how global businesses are impacted by real world developments in economics, politics and finance. The business environment is dynamic in nature. The course coverage is therefore updated periodically to include current real world evidence as well as recent academic and empirical findings. The five broad topics covered in the course are: Globalisation, Country Differences, Cross-Border Trade & Investment, the Global Monetary System, and Competing in a Global Market Place.



International Marketing  

This International Marketing course will help you develop an understanding of the scope and challenges of marketing in the international context. The course examines how the global dimensions technology, research, capital investment and production impact marketing, distribution and communication networks. The breadth of this course will provide insights into the increasingly interdependent global economic and physical environment and its impact on international marketing. Globalisation has led to increasing interdependence. Connecting the dots has thus become essential to the survival and success of businesses, even those not operating in the international arena. By examining these linkages, the students will gain an understanding of how companies develop strategic plans that are competitive to survive and succeed in these global markets. The unique localised content provided by the CAPA centres will present further regional insights into the key issues surrounding marketing from an international perspective.



Literature of the Americas  

In this course, we'll explore some of the many literary forms writers invented to suit modern life in the hemisphere Europeans first called the New World. We will read the works of three poets (Whitman, Stein, Cesaire) and three fiction writers (McKay, Borges, Lispector). All of our writers conceived new styles and rhythms they believed emerged from and responded to a unique set of American conditions. These conditions included great possibilities - democracy, liberty, rights - and terrible abuses - slavery, colonialism, racism. To confront realities of this kind, these writers revitalized language, updated sound and sense, and reconceived literature's relationship to other human activities in original and powerful ways. As we read their sometimes weird, sometimes difficult poems and stories, we will ask how writers respond through formal experimentation to the urgent political and social questions life in the Americas raises. This course will be taught in English.
