    This course will examine demographic diversity in today’s global environment. It will begin by exploring global emigration, immigration, and refugee issues from an international business perspective. Specific national or regional business cultures and differing perspectives on gender, family, age, ethnicity, and treatment of the disabled will also be examined through case studies, readings, and role-playing. The course will subsequently examine the effects of diversity on international corporate structure and behavior and demonstrate, through case studies and guest speakers, how proactive businesses have adapted to changes in demographic diversity and gained a competitive advantage.
