Greetings from the Carlson Global Institute!

Fall is again upon us, with a new academic year well underway. We are pleased to share with you a few updates from the Carlson School as well as a new addition to our newsletter, Insights from the Field.

Insights from the Field is designed to feature insights and perspectives of global business practitioners. In this edition, we are featuring an article from Patrick McGinnis, vice-president of product development at Best Buy. He is an alumnus of the Carlson MBA program and serves as chair of the Carlson Global Institute Advisory Council. In this inaugural column, Patrick shares his thoughts on global competency. 

We hope you enjoy this edition of Going Global!
