Subject Description

Students completing Perspectives in International Business will gain an understanding of the many issues which face executives, business managers and organisations when they move from the familiar domestic environment into engaging in international business with a wide variety of cultural, social and political contexts and business practices. Students will learn how to assess global business opportunities for exporting, importing, foreign direct investment and international collaborations. Our individual cultural perspectives provide a basis for comparing other ways of thinking and acting and help develop cultural sensitivity. Students will be introduced to a variety of frameworks which help develop more effective decision making skills and will practice teamwork and communication skills that are essential in today’s globalised business environment.
