This course prepares students for operating and managing businesses in the international and global environment by exploring contextual, organisational and managerial issues across national and cultural boundaries for global competitiveness. The focus is on the globalisation of markets and the internationalisation of organisations' value chains within the context of cultural, legal, ethical, human resource management, corporate social responsibility and sustainability issues. In addition, students will explore the challenges and opportunities related to government intervention, regional economic integration and emerging markets. These activities will expand students' international management competencies, challenge their perceptions about the management of foreign firms, and assist them in fulfilling a managerial role in a global company. The assignments expose students to the activities of companies expanding globally and will challenge them to deal with complexities of international management.
