Subject outline

This subject on international business management describes analyses and critiques the principal environmental challenges, strategic responses and interpersonal dynamics of managing and organising in a global context. It begins by exploring the complex and uneven process of globalization, and the key political, economic, legal, ethical technological and sociocultural environments in which contemporary global business takes place. The subject then moves to address the three interconnected issues of strategy, structure and culture in international business operations. It aims to develop the skills necessary to design and implement global strategies, to manage daily operations in foreign subsidiaries and to conduct effective cross-and intra-cultural cultural interactions.
