Students will review, critically consider and discuss a variety of contemporary issues in international management (IM). With an initial focus on multinational management and comparative management, international management has expanded to include issues concerning the globalisation of the world economy and its effects on competition between firms and nations.
Key components of IM are:
- Multinational Management—studying the multinational firm, reasons for its existence, the way it conducts business and its effects
- Comparative management—considering the transfer of management practices across countries, cross-national or cross-cultural similarities and differences of management phenomena
- Globalisation of the World Economy—focusing on its effects on competition between firms and nations.
You are expected to bring to the fore issues that are contemporary and that fit within the main strands of IM stated above.
This subject includes a Work Integrated Learning (WIL) experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a real or simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry and/or community is integral to your experience.
