The paper thrashes out making and renewal of a global organization comprising quality professionals with life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness for the people it serves, no matter what the ethnic make up and location in the world. A course on Quantitative Analysis and Programming Methods, following this paradigm, in educating professionals for a global organization has been described.
