The rise of global corporations is one of the distinctive features of globalization. What are the origins of the modern global corporation? What is their impact on politics, society and the economy? This course seeks to convey a sophisticated understanding that goes beyond bumper stickers maligning corporations or celebrating unfettered capitalism, to deepen the students understanding of multinationals as complex and powerful organizations, and to learn a variety of perspectives on multinational corporate activity.
