The University of St. Thomas College of Business and the Center for Ethical Business Cultures are offering a graduate-level MBA-MIM-MBC course titled “Ethics, Culture and Business: A European Perspective in a Global Economy.” The course will be held June 14-22, 2003, in Brussels, Belgium, and in London and Cambridge, England.

This course enables students to experience the dynamics and challenges of globalization and explore its effects on ethics, culture and business from a European perspective. Students will meet with business executives from multinational companies as well as academics and government officials. Discussions will center on business ethics and corporate social responsibility issues as well as on economic, socioeconomic, political and cultural issues unique to Europe and their impact in a global economy. Participants will learn through on-site interactive visits, cultural immersion, discussion, reflection and a state-of-the-art online teaching forum.

There are only a few spaces remaining in the course. The extended application deadline is April 1, 2003.
