For much of the past two decades, accounts of economic and political life in “Europe” focused primarily on developments and trends in European Union member states. However, the recent crisis in the EU and the apparent slowing of the EU enlargement process has increased interest in the growing potential of other, non-EU, economic and political centers – specifically Russia and Turkey. This faculty development in international business (FDIB) program offers business faculty exciting opportunities to explore the business and politics of “the other Europe” through a multicultural trip directed by Dr. Andrew Konitzer.
Program participants will visit Moscow and Samara in Russia, and Istanbul in Turkey. The participants will develop an understanding of regional business, economic and political issues in these countries and how they relate to regional and global markets. The trip will involve lectures on economic, business and political trends, group seminars, company and governmental visits.
