Course Aims and Relationship to Other Courses
The aims of this course are: to explore how MNEs’ strategic decisions and actions can be affected by many different types of external forces (political, economic, socio-cultural) in the home and host countries in which MNEs operate. to assess the role of supranational organisations, especially the WTO and regional economic blocs as increasingly important stakeholders to MNEs. to enhance students’ readiness to practice management beyond their specific national contexts.
This course is usually chosen by students fulfilling a requirement for their degree and/or specialization or by students seeking to expand their management knowledge. Regardless of whether you take it as a requirement or as a choice, it is important to highlight that this course only gives you some rudimentary tools to cope with a certain range of issues faced by MNEs. In order to gain a fuller picture of the challenges faced
by these organisations and the tools required to handle them, it is suggested that you seriously consider taking, at minimum, the following courses: • • •
MGMT-5602: Cross Cultural Management MGMT-5603: Global Business Strategy and Management MGMT-5609: Global Business Operations and Management
Additional courses might be needed if your interests are related to specific knowledge domains such as international finance, international marketing, etc....
