Globalization and Localization of Business Exports (GLOBE)
The Center for Globalization and Localization of Business Exports (GLOBE) provides education, consulting and research in the rapidly expanding area of business globalization and localization.
Differences in language, culture, legal regulations or business structure often require companies to make changes to their products, business processes and allocation of resources to market to target customers abroad more effectively and less expensively.
Faculty and student teams at the Center develop business plans for companies requesting localization assistance, and provide consulting and research services. Faculty and student teams at the Center help companies assess their globalization or localization needs, develop strategies and facilitate implementations through the Center's executive development, consulting and research services.
In addition, the Center develops curricula in globalization and localization for the Fisher International MBA Program courses and training programs, and customized business courses for students enrolled in the Master of Arts in Translation and Localization Management program in the Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation and Language Education (GSTILE), as well as for students in any of the Institute's other graduate programs.
