  • Overview

    International Business is a multidisciplinary course which considers important macro and micro issues relating to
    global business practice. Topics include: the political, legal and economic environment of business; international
    trade theory; the role of government; foreign direct investment; the world financial environment; less developed
    countries (LDCs); central and eastern Europe; the European Community; multinational enterprises, managerial
    strategies and performance measurement and control of companies. The course is taught within the context of a
    changing global business environment. Whilst it considers the economic position of the ?triad? countries of Japan,
    North America and Europe, it also focuses on the emerging economies of Central and Eastern Europe and the
    pacific rim countries. Case studies are used on the course to give students practical insights of the topics under
    discussion. Case studies span several functional areas of management and include human resources, strategy,
    operations management, economics, organisational behaviour and accounting.
