SUNY Geneseo Students Learn "How to Conduct Business" in Chile

Conducting business outside US borders requires an expanded set of managerial skills.  Most of the "emerging" economies operate in a different cultural context, with different business values and norms.  The lack of understanding around these differences has been translated by many US companies into perceived increased risk and thus, inaction and lost business opportunities.

Thus, this past August, eleven students from SUNY Geneseo traveled to Santiago, Chile on a "business focused" Study Abroad program.  The objective of the trip was to have students gain first-hand knowledge as to the steps International Business managers take in preparation to enter an international market.  See More>>
