Clark Teaching with the USAC: Bangalore, India
Tim Clark, assistant professor of management, spent winter break teaching in India. Through the program University Study Abroad Consortium (USAC) program, Clark taught a business-and-government-relations class at Christ University in Bangalore.
The USAC program gives American students the opportunity to study in different countries while earning credits from their home school. This particular program was worth three credits for three weeks. While most of the participants are from the social and environmental sciences, the program's breadth was improved by having a business professor participate.
The course that Clark taught was focused on how businesses interact with governments. The students were able to talk to Indian businesspeople from organizations large and small and hear firsthand some of their challenges. Being as the course was comparative, the students were able to compare how American and Indian businesses have to deal with their respective governments. Clark says he was grateful for the opportunity and had an enriching experience in India.
