Study Abroad Flyer



This course will take a practical look at building a business plan for an entrepreneur or firm
interested in the development of a new product or service in the transportation business. A key
element of the course is a project; students build a detailed plan to solve transportation-related
problems, whether old or new. This may include analysis of problems of produce/service design,
channel structure, promotion, and inter-organization cooperation and control in international marketing. Special emphasis will be placed on the importance of innovation and creativity for customer satisfaction. This course will take students to Wuppertal, Germany, and Amsterdam, Netherlands.

This course is open to upper-division students in the colleges of Engineering and Business. Also, upper-division students in the Department of Geography and City and Regional Planning (College of Social Sciences). Early registration is strongly encouraged. Proof of a valid passport is required prior to the trip. Any disability requiring special attention must be reported to the instructor.
