Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, you will gain an appreciation of how changes to the international business environment impact on the conduct of businesses in the domestic and international arena. We begin the semester by examining the main drivers of globalisation and the development of multi-national enterprises. We explore how businesses internationalise, with a specific focus on strategies for internationalisation, and how business structures and processes can support these strategies. Within this discussion, we focus specifically on issues of cross cultural management and knowledge transfer. We conclude our examination of international management by discussing the ethical, social and environmental responsibilities of multi-national enterprises,
