Theological Research Institute, Ltd. (TRI) | Evaluated Learning Experience
The Globalization Paradox (BUS 210)
October 2018 - Present.
Upon successful completion of this learning experience, students will be able to: identify the actors who have shaped the globalization in different historical periods; analyze multiple globalization ideologies; analyze variations in the global patterns and evaluate the various impacts on development; identify and evaluate some of the alternative ways of approaching development being pursued today; identify and describe the rationale for and critiques of development policies and programs that have been pursued, and evaluate their various impacts.
The aim of the course is to contribute to a critical understanding of the relationships among globalization, migration, and the welfare state. Each of these phenomena is complex and important in their own right. This course, however, will explore the significant ways in which these forces interact and affect each other. In addition to a general introduction to the major themes and their intersections, students will focus on approaches to immigration and immigrant integration as well as variation in the experiences of immigrants in relation to social policies and economic conditions.
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Economics, International Business, Management, Marketing, or Organizational Behavior (10/20).
