    This module offers a broad overview of the process of globalisation and changes in international business over time. The focus is on the multinational firm set in the context of trends in the world economy, with particular emphasis on the period since the 1970s. It provides a critical and comparative perspective on the nature and scope of international business, its origins and development, the theory, policy and practice of international trade and direct foreign investment, conceptualisations of international supply chains/global production networks and the logistics revolution, and the social and political effects of multinational activities. These issues will be illustrated through case studies in the areas of manufacturing, agri-business and intellectual property.
