COURSE
ORGD 6065 Exploring International Organization Development

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The international organization development study tour focuses on examining aspects of organization development, human resource management and change management in contexts and cultures outside the United States.  Students are exposed to new cultural environments and given the opportunity to interact with organization development/human resource management professionals to learn about the change process and how it is affected by cultural differences. Students are assigned readings on global perspectives on organizational theory and behavior, organization development practice, and models of international culture. The first-hand exposure to other countries provides students with the opportunity to compare OD/HRM/CM practices in different cultural contexts, to interact with OD practitioners, students, and community members from different cultures, and to participate in OD-related activities during the study tour.

EXCURSIONS
Cultural visits to local museums in Florence, company visit to Mukki, walking tours of both Florence and Venice, other company and organization visits in both cities.

ACCOMMODATION
Hotel accommodations (arranged by BGSU)

PROGRAM COSTS
Standard EMOD program costs and enrollment in full EMOD program is required. Students should anticipate paying for a few personal meals.
