This course serves as an overview of the economic, political, social, and cultural characteristics of Latin America as they relate to the business context. It helps students develop a foundational understanding of the region’s business environment and its challenges and opportunities. It consists of special talks with LAS industry alumni and real-world project work. No previous Latin American coursework required, but is helpful.
