The course of global economy gives a historical framework for understanding the role of entrepreneurs in shaping global capitalism over the last two centuries. Through a combination of lectures and case study discussions, the students will be introduced to the history of entrepreneurs and firms from different countries and industries.
Placing business in a broad political, economic and socio-cultural context, the course explores the challenging decisions and ethical dilemmas entrepreneurs faced in the past, shows long-term developments over time, and asks students to evaluate decision-making processes.
