Managing local practices in global contexts

Free statement of participation on completion

It is hard to think of a part of the world that has not been touched by globalisation. From 'Big Macs' in Moscow to Blockbuster video in Beijing, the world seems less distant, and 24-hour-a-day news makes foreign places more familiar. This free course, Managing local practices in global contexts, examines the dimensions of globalisation and the processes that connect people together.
