  • Overview

    Rationale and Purpose of the Module: The rationale for this module is to provide students with a thorough appreciation of managing organisations internationally, along with an understanding of the different trajectories of current International Management thinking. The module is dedicated to answering four core questions which focus on developing skills for operating in an international environment;
    1). What is international management and what complexities arise when operating at the international level?
    2.) How do we understand differences between countries when managing internationally, and what are the implications of these differences for international managers?
    3.) What is the most appropriate way for firms to internationalise, and to manage and structure their activities?
    4.) How can we develop the managerial talents and capabilities to ensure that managers can be a success internationally
