Countries characterized by economic, social and political environments that are conducive to entrepreneurship provide more opportunities for businesses to grow and develop faster. Since business ventures are becoming increasingly global, an understanding of entrepreneurial environments of economies worldwide is crucial in order to exploit opportunities worldwide. 
In light of the above observations, this course examines how economic factors, physical factors, trade factors and formal and informal institutions affect entrepreneurship and how entrepreneurs create and manage business ventures that have international dimensions. 
This course is multidisciplinary in nature and scope and provides broad global perspectives on cultures, nations and sub-nationalities in the industrialized and developing world from the standpoint of entrepreneurship. This course also examines how cultural, social, political, economic and historical changes taking place in the world, especially in the economies in transition, affect entrepreneurial development. It places a special emphasis on inter-connections between regions through such mechanisms as global flow of goods, services, labor, capitals, technology and people; and the roles of supra-national institutions (e.g., the OECD). In the course, case analyses will draw on concepts, skills, and insights from such disciplines as marketing, operations, finance, control, decision-making, leadership, ethics, governance, negotiation. 
The course will be organized around three major sections: (1) international entrepreneurship: drivers, performance, and impact, (2) entrepreneurship in economies with diverse economic and institutional conditions, and (3) cases related to international entrepreneurship.
