By Jonathan Poston
Galen University Belize has released its fall 2014 schedule of classes and among them are Chinese Business Partnerships & Economic Development, and Marketing Research. Both of these classes have real world applications for Belizean professionals who want to engage in business in Belize, whether it’s international or domestic.
Galen University has long been known as an institution of higher education for those in Belize who want to go on to develop themselves further with careers in government, banking, higher education, and other esteemed vocations. Many Galen alumni hold positions within the most respectable organizations, and while “who you know” is indeed important in the world of business networking, at Galen, students learn the specifics on how business can benefit Belize.
In Marketing Research class, Galen students have worked across national borders, collaborating with government-oriented institutions in China and the USA to study international penetration strategies that may ultimately promote Belizean exports to the USA, or China. Marketing research students stay on the cutting edge by understanding how important data science and internet analytics have become in market research, and how understanding trends via data found online can actually increase tourism, product sales, etc. in Belize. Marketing research has never been more useful than in today’s data rich world, it’s just a matter of understanding how to filter the data that counts.
In Chinese Business Partnerships & Economic Development, Galen students have learned about China’s long history, language, business culture, and international business strategies. Students worked with immigration data specialists in Belize to understand how very strong and influential the Chinese business community is in Belize. Galen students didn’t just study Chinese business theory, they went out, and reached across communities to meet respected Chinese business leaders to better understand how they could have a deeper stake in the ongoing businesses run by members of the Chinese community. The progress they made was surprising, and undoubtedly worth the time of taking the course.
