MSED STUDENTS HELP TEACH INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS 


In what may be a signal of more to come, two graduate students in the Master's of Science in Economic Development program recently served as guest lecturers of an undergraduate international marketing course taught in the College of Business at the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Coast campus. Daniel Assamah and D.E. "Sam" Leiva, both of whom are entering their final semester, were invited this month by Dr. Marco Wolf, assistant professor of marketing, to illustrate the importance of taking a global view on local issues and the need for international preparedness to a class of about 30 students. Assamah lectured on the international marketing of education while Leiva discussed economic development in Panama to illuminate the impact of both subjects on the area's economy. "The novelty of your topics will benefit students in examining their immediate environment more closely," Wolf said. "I am convinced the class and I will be able to draw from your cases in upcoming textbook chapters." In the fall, the Department of Economic and Workforce Development will officially move into the College of Business.
