OverviewInternational Business combines the science and art of business management with many other disciplines such as economics, anthropology and political science. The evolution of international business as an identifiable academic discipline is as a direct consequence of the growth of multinational business organisation and the emergence of what is widely termed the global economy. This course aims to guide the student in understanding the arena in which international business is conducted. It ranges from micro issues of staffing and strategic management to macro issues of political, economic and sociocultural analysis. By the end of the course, students should be able to identify, analyze, and understand the organizational impact of a wide variety of global management issues. In addition, students should be able to develop broad, strategic solutions and/or plans of action in response to any combination of market, political, socio-cultural, and /or competitive global force.
