Synopsis

This course examines the dynamics and challenges that today's managerial leaders increasingly face as the worlds of business, work and organisational life become more 'globalised' and internationally integrated. Increasingly managerial leaders are required to do their work across borders and cultures, spanning national and international boundaries, and engaging with people and systems that sometimes differ vastly. Organisations that operate in such international contexts thus require those people who take on management and leadership roles to have competencies that are different and particularly built around cross-cultural and transnational mindsets and capabilities. This course allows for the development of such knowledge and competencies. The overall focus is on general management of organisations that operate in diverse and multicultural environments, but because culture is so important to today's globalised organisations, the culture theme is emphasised throughout this course. Global and cultural contextual issues are addressed as well as issues related to international human resource management. In particular also, the relevant leadership and ethics challenges in such an international environment are explored in order to develop competencies and capabilities in managing and leading people in cross-national contexts. Similarities and differences in relation to particular management and leadership issues across countries in different parts of the world are therefore also covered. Whilst there are no pre-requisite courses for MGT3001, it is a third-year level course and students enrolling should be mindful that the content and assessment is at third-year level.
