Global Economy and Inequality

For those with interests in business, finance, and the economy, anthropology both increases understanding of other cultures in ways helpful for international transactions and negotiations, and supplies an incisive analysis of the corporate world and economic systems. Anthropology is also a deeply collaborative form of knowledge, hence this pathway offers opportunities to interact with professionals and appreciate them as thoughtful actors in a globalizing and interconnecting world.
