Course Description

The majority of businesses say they want to become more global. And business leaders say that the lack of people with global intelligence is the key constraint holding them back. This course will address both gaps — at the business and the personal level, it will focus on practical strategies for dealing with the real consequences of globalization.

Rockstar professor who became youngest tenured at HBS Presents a Culture, Administrative, Geographic, and Economic framework to argue that the world is NOT flat but is only in its earliest stages of globalization and that success is bred by taking short steps in these 4 dimensions- expand to a similar culture, with similar Common or Civil Law, in a relatively close region that has similar economic development and you will succeed by not having to adapt too much until you learn. Content was great, cases study approach was great. After the first few weeks the lecturer becomes more humble and the arguments more convincing than dogmatic Peer review project to analyze a country in the framework which was an excellent way to drill home how a strategist could do a high level review of the sensibility of entering a market. The peers were novices with little business experience so forums and peer review was a bit naive and facile. 4 stars and...

The course provides a good review of relevant factors and is worth the time. However, you may wish to skip the class as a severe grading error was made in my case, and Coursera's response to that is they do not have the time to review grading errors.

I had great hopes from this course. However found that the content and style of this course was no different from the journalists that the instructor so despises. In fact Ghemawat comes across as petty and combative and not 'academic' as he likes to describe himself. What I also found ludicrous was the fact he failed to factor in geography in comparisons. Dissapointing
