Course Details

Companies are seeking to expand internationally and are depending more and more on international markets. If your company engages or is planning to engage in international business, there are two questions you must address: 1) How can we heighten our awareness and better manage cultural difference? 2) How do we insure our organization is "aligned" and capable of succeeding in international business? This course introduces concepts along with useful frameworks and tools for international business management, management of cultural difference and organizational alignment in order to strategize and manage international business more effectively. Through lecture (PowerPoint with audio), video, readings and case studies students acquire knowledge and apply it through course discussion and assignments.
