Description: Think you have resource constraints? Just try to launch a new venture in an emerging economy, which often lack reliable distribution channels, deep-pocketed investors, and product-hungry customers. In this course, which draws heavily from other disciplines like sociology and history, students will learn how to build businesses where they are needed most. By the end of the course, according to Khanna, students will gain an “awareness of the opportunities for entrepreneurship in fast-growing emerging markets; an understanding of a conceptual framework for evaluating such opportunities; and an appreciation of the types of problems that lend themselves to entrepreneurial solutions.”
