Course Description
Interested students must complete the DYNM 657 Course Application: 

Government actions play a major role in business, shaping the environment in which companies operate and making direct purchasing and investment decisions.  Most organizations, however, do little to consider, respond to and shape government decisions that impact them.  This course will explore ways in which the private and public sectors interact and will equip organization leaders to engage strategically with governments around the world.   Students will study how government actions influence business results and will learn proven methods for optimizing growth and reducing risk from interaction with governments.  

The instructor will draw on his 40 years of professional experience as international government affairs leader for General Electric, as a consultant, and as a trade negotiator in the Office of the United States Trade Representative.  The course will use case studies and small group exercises to illustrate and emphasize key points.  Students will also engage with business and government leaders, who will discuss challenges they face and successful approaches to addressing those challenges.
