The strategic aspects of doing business internationally and why firms internationalise.

Firms face many choices with respect to how and where to operate. For many companies, the choices are not limited to the domestic market - today, doing business internationally is a viable option for firms of all sizes. This paper addresses strategic aspects of doing business across national borders, introducing students to various aspects of how and why firms internationalise. By introducing the principles of global business strategy, the aim of MANT 342 is to prepare students to manage effectively, armed with an understanding of the decisions associated with selecting various organisational options for internationalising and dealing with the multitude of institutional environments that exist in the firm's potential markets.
