This certificate program prepares you for working within the state's emerging Asia-oriented economy. It combines an overview of the nuances of the regional economy with an introduction to Asia's cultural and historical development. Topics will include an introduction to Asian culture and philosophy, corporate-government relations, twentieth-century history, regional development, and export strategies. It can be supplemented with study abroad opportunities and language study. There are two tracks: one for College of Business majors and one for non-business majors.
