Description
This course focuses on exploring and considering the impact of the international context on business and specific management functions which both domestic and internationally operating firms must consider to remain successful. This approach includes examining the macro-international environment from a variety of perspectives, including the political, legal, social, cultural, technological and business contexts. In addition to lectures and text materials, current articles in international management are used in each class to directly apply many of the course concepts and to better understand how international management issues are perceived by different stakeholders in a variety of international environments. Given the growing importance of emerging markets and economies for international business, this course also includes attention to issues involving a variety of geographic regions.
