Dr. Hettie Richardson
With a rapidly growing and business-friendly economy, Peru is an ideal setting to learn about international business and globalization, international strategy, human resource management and organizational behavior. Discover how decisions about entering and competing in a foreign market are shaped by cultural, political, legal and competitive factors. See how leaders and managers behave in different cultures and how management practices are adapted to fit local conditions. By exploring the role of tourism in the Peruvian economy, you will gain an understanding of how values-centered enterprises can benefit local communities, contribute to conservation, and respect traditional culture and social structures.
