This is one of six segments from August 2017 of the globalEDGE Business Beat on the importance of international trade with various topic experts (Doug Barry, Charles Hill, Mohamed Abdel-Kader, Sarah Singer, Kirt Butler, and Ram Mudambi). Each participant addressed: Why is international trade important for (1) countries and (2) companies; how should a company start looking into trading internationally; and what country markets, and customer segments within those markets, have the strongest potential in the next decade. The six experts’ answers and diversity of strategic and tactical suggestions provide small, medium, and large businesses choices on how to go international.

Hosted by Tomas Hult, this segment of the globalEDGE Business Beat is an interview with his co-author, Charles Hill, on the book titled Global Business Today, 10th edition, published by McGraw-Hill.

Global Business Today is the number one ranked textbook in international business with about 50 percent of the worldwide market share (with 22 other textbooks competing for the other half of the market).

Charles W. L. Hill is the Hughes & Katherine Blake Endowed Professor of International Business in the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. Tomas Hult is Professor and Byington Endowed Chair in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.

Tomas and Charles discuss why the Global Business Today textbook has maintained worldwide market leadership for some 20 years. They also talk about how students should prepare for the global marketplace, being successful as a global citizen, and why the Global Business Today book is an excellent preparation in their education.

A unique feature of Global Business Today is that even the country chapters and macro-oriented chapters (e.g., international trade) are managerially focused on what companies and managers need to do and implement, and they discuss that aspect of the book as well.

Hosted by Tomas Hult, this segment of the globalEDGE Business Beat is an interview with Charles W. L. Hill, who is the Hughes & Katherine Blake Endowed Professor of International Business in the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington.

Tomas Hult is Professor and Byington Endowed Chair in the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. Tomas interviews Charles about the world’s negative sentiments toward globalization and trade (e.g., Europe, USA). We can perhaps call this a Trump effect or a Brexit effect, but the negative sentiment toward globalization, or at least movement of people, seems to be existing in many of the so-called developed nations.

Charles addresses the notion that perhaps developed nations do not want more people from less developed countries. Or, more aptly, is there more to this negativity? Plus, Charles takes a guess on what the world’s globalization sentiment will be at the end of Trump’s four-year term and after Brexit is implemented?

Tomas Hult speaks with Charles Hill, Hughes & Katherine Blake Endowed Professor, in the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington. They talk about Charles leading textbooks in international business – the long version of the text, titled International Business (now in its 11th edition); and the short version titled, Global Business Today (now in its 9th edition).

Tomas Hult was brought on as a co-author for the last editions of both versions, but the focus in this segment is on Professor Hill’s thinking about the uniqueness and market-leadership of the “Hill franchise.” They address issues, such as why Charles Hill thinks his books are the top selling textbooks in the U.S. and worldwide; how these international business textbooks help prepare students to be successful in the global marketplace; and the unique focus of the books on being managerial and very practically relevant for students as they enter the workforce.
