IN492 International Trade Practicum in Peru

Students interested in international businesses will find in Peru a great opportunity to observe a developing country ascending the global supply chain. Peru is currently ex-porting more than $600 million of apparel annually to the U.S., a trend that will only increase when the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) proposal is completed. As a newly-emerging market economy, Peru also offers compelling marketing research opportunities to students interested in exploring U.S. brandsí penetration: 30 million Peruvian consumers with widely diverse income levels and an annual GDP growth over 6%, that is, three-times larger than the U.S. In this Practicum we will learn about Peruís apparel and fashion industries, history of indigenous populations and Spaniard colonization, and con-temporary social and political issues. Students also have the option to participate in an optional one-day excursion to Machu Picchu.
