Gaining a competitive advantage.  It's a constant theme throughout the Temple University Executive MBA (EMBA) program.  Regardless of the subject – whether it's quantitative or qualitative – our program teaches students to evaluate every area, every function for possible advantage.  Our upcoming Managing Information Systems will explore how companies can leverage technology for advantage.  The professor, Dr. Frank Azuola, has authored a white paper and will present it as part of our Knowledge Leadership Series.  Below are the details.

Technology, Innovation & Globalization - A Competitive Strategy PerspectiveDownload the White Paper

Wednesday, August 28, 2013 - 7:00pm


Join Dr. Frank Azuola as he presents an overview of globalization strategies that enable and foster opportunities for technology transfer and innovation.  Three main perspectives related to the impact of globalization on technology transfer and innovation are considered. First, country-level competitive strategies geared towards globalization are analyzed. Second, strategies adopted by firms for global leadership are reviewed. Lastly, the paradigm shift in terms of globalization brought along by the Internet economy is discussed.


Countries looking for opportunities to attract foreign direct investment, adopt competitive strategies to help them become more desirable targets to investors. In its various forms, foreign direct investment brings along opportunities for economic benefits to the host countries, including technology transfer and innovation. Following varied globalization strategies, firms move out of their local environment, setting targets outside of their home base, in order to seek growth, expansion, and cost-saving opportunities. As the presence and use of the Internet becomes ubiquitous around our planet, opportunities for globalization along with technology transfer and innovation are no longer exclusive of countries and firms, but are now open to individuals.
