Online Business Course: BUS-X 488 Globalization

NOTE: This class does not count toward the Business minor, the Entrepreneurship and Small Busisness Management minor, or the Business Foundations Certificate. This class merely counts as an elective outside the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Kelley School of Business is offering an online three-credit course on Globalization (BUS X488) both sessions this summer and in the falll for students who have previously studied abroad or who have had an international experience (such as international students, international internships or significant volunteer experiences abroad). The course is offered entirely online using software created for our Executive MBA program, Kelley Direct and takes into account experiences students gained as a result of living abroad. In order to follow the course, students only need computer access with Internet. We will read the book the World is Flat by Thomas Friedman and discuss some of the pros and cons of globalization using real life observations from the country in which each student studied.

This course is by authorization only, and space is limited. Students will receive authorization on a first-come, first-served basis. This is a great opportunity to take an online course that will not be offered to all students. Please email Tammy Orahood ( if you have questions or if you want to be authorized. Feel free to forward this to your students.
