Business and Culture Along the Silk Roads

Good training in business management and cultural competence are essential requirements for the development of successful and sustainable enterprises. This program will focus on the interconnections between business, economy, and culture, with a specific application to trade, cultural exchange, and community development along the Silk Roads.
In spring quarter we will concentrate on business management, leadership and developing sustainable applications of students’ business plans. We will study basic business accounting and explore the transformation of Silk Roads societies through globalization.
