“All major hiring companies need global citizens. Global sensitivities, global perspective, global insight; along with maturity and a capacity for risk-taking, are exactly the skills every major organization is looking for–in every industry.”
- Kevin Gill, Global Director of Staffing for Honeywell

BUS 101 at the University of Miami
The dearth of globally literate undergraduates prepared to meet the demands of the new global marketplace is worrisome. Even in traditionally domestic industries—retailing, banking, consumer products, or insurance—globalization pressures will require cross-border relationships. In the face of these new realities, and the fact that geography and technology are no longer hindrances, businesses are pushing for access to individuals who demonstrate global knowledge and strong intercultural communications skills. Those future managers who are able to demonstrate global knowledge and cultural competence will have a distinct advantage in advancing their own professional goals and will become important voices in any organization conducting business in the world’s economy.

BUS 101 proposes to help new freshmen not only to begin to build cross-cultural competence, and to understand pressing issues facing global business, but also to develop teamwork and presentation skills, and to design a personal brand that recognizes the many facets of professionalism and positions the student for future success.

Course Goals
This course is designed for the first-year undergraduate business student to: enhance cultural competency by

Some of the assessment criteria achieved are within the observation detail but it is confusing and unclear which criteria have been achieved.
