3 course credits
Business and Culture in Sub-Saharan Africa examines the position of sub-Saharan Africa within the global economy and how it is leapfrogging development in certain areas. This course covers sub-Saharan Africa’s history, civic culture, and public, private, and for-profit sectors providing learners with the unique and complex components of the region’s past, present, and potential on the world economic stage. Through the lens of various stakeholders—those internal and external to business enterprises and those who engage in market-based and non-market-based transactions to influence business—learners acquire a practical literacy which prepares them to engage in business within and among African employers, employees, and business partners. Learners gain an understanding of the specific drivers of economic growth and opportunity that exist across Sub-Saharan Africa with a focus on Nigeria, Ghana, Angola and Ethiopia.
