Doing Business in Sub-Sahara Africa provides a broad overview of culture and management practices in Sub-Sahara African economies putting some emphasison countries such as South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, and Angola as their business activities are diligently connected with those of greater Sub-Saharan Africa. The course will conduct a survey examination of sub-Saharan Africa business environment, along with that of each country’s history, culture and economy; and it will examine specific management practices in each country. In this course, students will evaluate how sub-Saharan Africa’s geopolitical, economic, financial, and legal status is impacting its ability to compete in the global market. Conversely, students will examine the effect that global events are having on Sub-Sahara African production, resource consumption, imports, and exports. Strategic management implications will be thoroughly explored. Finally, this course will critically evaluate how Sub-Sahara African countries view social responsibility taking into account local customs, values, beliefs, ethics, and the laws.
