Exploring international business opportunities for Maine companies

Concluding a semester-long, in-depth research and analysis project, students from Saint Joseph’s Cross Cultural Management class present their findings on business opportunities in the developing markets of Brazil, Russia, South Africa, China, Turkey and India for local, Maine companies on April 25. Kevin Hancock, president of Hancock Lumber, will precede the presentation with opening remarks.

Led by Fulbright Scholar Beth Richardson, J.D., students spent the spring semester performing group research on select countries to understand their markets’ histories, cultural customs and economies. Utilizing professional journals, periodicals, news publications and direct communication with industry professionals like Kevin Hancock, Richardson’s students developed comprehensive case studies on potential international business opportunities for Maine-based businesses.

The presentation is free and open to the public. It takes place at 7 p.m. in the Viola George Auditorium, Harold Alfond Hall, at Saint Joseph’s Standish campus.
