OverviewBusinesses operate in an increasingly globalized environment and most business graduates will develop careers which will involve some degree of working and managing in international environments. This module focuses on international aspects in management theory and literature, which are relevant across international cultures and borders. There is a particular focus on comparing the institutional context and cultures of countries. This serves the basis for analyzing managing in international environments, considering approaches to ethics, negotiation, motivation, and management and leadership across countries. The applicability of theoretical concepts in different international environments is explored during the module, encouraging participants to consider and recognize the importance of understanding and embracing difference across countries.
