IBUS 3055 provides state-of-the-art knowledge about Information Technologies and fundamentals of entrepreneurship with an international learning experience offered virtually. Over the last decade, dramatic changes in technologies, economic conditions, and geopolitical developments have opened new business opportunities in international markets both for new high-tech ventures and for the already established companies. Increasingly, US-based companies and entrepreneurs need to understand the role of culturalization and adaptation of their IT products for success in international markets, particularly in fast-growing markets. The course will cover basics of consumer electronics, Internet and mobile communications, web technologies, cloud computing, cyber-security, social network, etc.
The entrepreneurship component of the course will cover the basic characteristics of entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial processes (i.e., typical events, tasks, and opportunities) at individual, firm, industry and international levels of analysis, and key functional competencies that are required of all entrepreneurial endeavors.
This course will not travel in Spring 2021. The course will be offered domestically in accordance with University of Minnesota options available at the time.
The program will look at how technology leaders and entrepreneurs in Germany, Austria and the world are addressing opportunities and growth.
