Professor Gary Knight studies the next wave of globalization

In addition to his many publications, Dr. Gary Knight, the Helen Simpson Jackson Chair in Global Management, takes his MBA courses in globalization on the road.  He’s currently organizing a series of brief international study trips for Willamette’s current and past MBA students. In Spring, 2013, Dr. Knight led a group of students on an inaugural trip to Brazil. In December, 2013 he led a group  to Chile, and in March, 2014, he’ll escort a group to China.

“We launched those trips because the US needs to participate more in the global economy. We need to approach our participation with increasing sophistication,” explains Dr. Knight. “We’re developing these programs with the goal of giving our students greater exposure to global management, and a certain degree of credibility with globally oriented employers.”
