Course Description

Explore Marketing and Culture in France's Burgundy Region - MGMT 39000 (1 credit)

The course is focused on understanding the marketing practices and culture of the Burgundy region of France. The regional economy is strongly rooted in traditional industries, such as wine, agriculture, and tourism, and it also boasts a significant presence in other types of industry such as fashion and technology. We will explore and visit companies in this region to talk with their leadership about how they accomplish their marketing goals.

The one credit course will provide an examination of marketing practices and cultural traditions in France and compare and contrast them with those in the United States. The curriculum consists of visits to businesses and historical sites, tours of regional landmarks, and hands-on activities to experience the French culture.

In addition, the program includes excursions to local cultural destinations in Macon and Lyon, such as an architectural tour of Lyon, visits to local historical sites, cultural activities, and a cooking class on traditional French cuisine. An optional visit to Paris is available at the end of the program.
