The Corporate Statecraft certificate provides an introduction to the political challenges corporations face abroad: the problems of dealing with and influencing different types of regimes; forecasting and coping with political instability; calculating political risks; protecting intellectual property and national security secrets from foreign intelligence threats; and how U.S. government agencies address foreign commercial issues in the context of their larger diplomatic, intelligence, and military missions. It also explains the national security and foreign policy processes in the Executive Branch, the role of Congress, and the roles of government agencies involved in the financial and regulatory realms; and how to optimize public-private partnerships in ways that maximize both vital national interests and corporate interests.
