The aim of this course is to examine long run changes in the organisation and management of business enterprises. The major themes to be covered include entrepreneurship, human resources, marketing, production, finance and organisational design. While there is no precise chronological period, the main concentration will be on the growth of large-scale corporations since about 1850 to the present day. One of the ideas behind the course is to examine issues in business using the benefit of historical evidence. The emphasis will be on a comparative approach by looking at the experience of individual firms in different industries and the pattern of corporate growth between countries, particularly between the UK, USA, Japan and Australia.
