This course will be a study abroad course in which the students will learn to use basic financial, managerial, marketing, and accounting skills to help micro businesses, NGOs, and informal endeavors in an emerging market.

This part of the course may be offered online, at the instructors' discretion. The extension of the classroom experience will be with hands-on consulting in an organization in an emerging market. The skills learned in this course will be transferable to future business experiences of the students. The students will be evaluated in several ways: by their self-assessment on recorded journals, by the professor's assessment of their work, and by the NGO partner in the emerging nation.
