The purpose of the course is to prepare managers to compete successfully in the global economy. The rapidly changing economic, political, technological and cultural environments will be studied as a foundation for understanding how to compete in differing environments, utilizing the resources available to the enterprise in managing the various functional areas of business.
Global interdependence among nations of the world is a reality. Trade barriers between nations have fallen, and trade blocs are rapidly forming as world leaders realize that there is more to be gained by collaborating with each other than by remaining economically isolated. Multinational corporations are playing a major role in this accelerating regional and global economic integration. The management of a company having international operations differs in many important ways from that of a company whose operations are confined to one nation. A major emphasis of this course will be to demonstrate how management activities in a global enterprise differ from those in a purely domestic firm.
