Business and Culture in India examines how a culturally rich India continues to evolve on the world stage as an economic power. This course examines how these two aspects intersect at every point, from the very history of the region's birth to the current state and looking forward to the future. Through the lens of various stakeholders—those internal and external to business enterprises and those who engage in market-based and non-market-based transactions to influence business—students will acquire a practical literacy which prepares them to engage in business within and among Indian employers, employees, and business partners. Learners gain an understanding of the specific drivers of economic growth and opportunity that exist in India.
