To Thrive or To Survive: Our Question in the World: To Thrive or To Survive: Our Question in an Evolving World
This course is coded GL, LM, PR, A, F
The seminar focuses on the implications for our own work and personal lives as we reinvent ourselves, our organizations, and our society in what is often called "the new normal." We begin with a realistic exploration of the relationship of the global economy to the widely different political systems which provide individuals with safety nets. We compare the United States to China and Europe and the ways in which our different systems both compete and support each other. Each participant will research a portion of the regional job market, analyzing the source of investments, patents, required skill level and experience of employees, and competitive outlook. The final presentation and paper will fit their regional analysis into the global picture. Where does it fit? What are its risks?
