International firms need to formulate company policies that take account of the fact that they manufacture, service, employ and market to or in countries with different laws, different beliefs and different levels of socio-economic development compared to a firm’s country of origin. This course examines the contextual, organisational and managerial issues associated with the operation of multinational firms. Interactions between contextual elements and management of an international enterprise will be studied from both theoretical and practical perspectives. The course includes topics such as international strategic management; international social and ethical responsibilities of firms; cross-cultural management and communication; international human resource management and workplace relations.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- explain and illustrate the international strategic management processes used by top level management in multinational enterprises;
- define, explain and illustrate the relationships among philosophic roots and approaches for international strategic planning and implementation, strategies for value chain activity integration, international business strategies, structure of multinational enterprises, and human resource management orientations, and the role which culture plays in managing multinational enterprises;
- creatively apply knowledge from different approaches to strategic management issues and problems of multinational enterprises, demonstrating thorough understanding of the various international strategic management concepts and their practical application; and,
- communicate effectively in oral and written forms about international strategic management using appropriate concepts, logic and rhetorical conventions.
- Typical assessment may include but is not restricted to: exams, assignments, quizzes, presentations and other assessments as appropriate. Further details will be made available via the Class Summary. (100) [LO 1,2,3,4]
