Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course provides you with a foundation in the theory and practice of International Business. It covers core concepts of international business and how these apply to the dynamics and constraints of international business strategy. The course considers the dynamics of economic, political, and socio-cultural aspects of environment and its impact on the International Firm and individuals. The course is designed to help students develop a world-view of the global marketplace, and gain knowledge and understanding of the global environment for business functions.
The course is structured in two macro parts. In the first part, there will be a detailed introduction of all the topics of the course from a theoretical point of view, with continuous references to practical cases. In the second part, there will be several discussions of real case studies in order to apply from a practical point of view the notions acquired in the first part.

By the end of this course, students should be able to:
1. Understand the role of globalisation in shaping the business environment, and recognize challenges and opportunities created by the globalisation of business practices.
2. Identify complexities introduced by globalisation and integrate concepts learned in this class with those acquired in other courses.
3. Employ critical thinking by keeping current with global events and discussing their implications.
4. Critically evaluate various components of a national environment: technological, cultural, economic, political, and legal systems, and their influence on business practices and strategies of the International Firm.
5. Consider the organisation and structure of the International Firm.
6. Understand different aspects of International Business strategy including global opportunity assessment, entry mode and market selection.
