NAU in Mexico - Exposure to International Trade

Mexicali, Mexico
 
Faculty - Nancy Baca and Paul Thomas
 
 
Mexicali is a border city where the industry is largely built around outsourcing requirements of the US manufacturing industry.  Companies such as Coca-Cola, LG Electronics,  Honeywell, GKN Aerospace, Kellogg's, Nestlé, Robert Bosch, and Goodrich Corporation have all built factories there.  This course provides an opportunity to examine some of the complexities of managing in a global environment, control and servicing of outsourcing agreements, and the provision and training of labor to satisfy quality control demands.  It also provides you with an occasion to experience the culture and practices of the local work-force and the opportunity to meet with Mexican professors and students.
