Modern business has become international in orientation. Professional managers need a sound understanding of international business, especially from the economic and strategic perspectives. The rationale, formulation and execution of international strategies within a rapidly changing global economy are vital for successful business. Modern managers should have a broad global perspective, a clear vision of the future of international business, risk and uncertainties involved in running a business, dynamics of emerging economies and strong strategic skills.

This course is focused on international business strategy in the changing global economy. The participants of international business and the current global business environment are analysed. Trade, government intervention, competitiveness, national policy, and emerging markets are related to international business strategy. National business environment and policies are analysed with emphasis placed on international business strategy, economic integration and globalisation. Key aspects of doing business overseas including multinational corporation activities are reviewed, emphasising international business strategy in action. Students will develop a broad vision of international business and its likely future challenges as well as practical skills in strategic analysis. Formerly MGT8060.
