MANT332 International Management

2021 information for papers will be published in early September. 

A theoretical framework for understanding the major organisations, processes and developments in the global environment and how these affect New Zealanders and our business organisations. Applications for managers of New Zealand-based firms are discussed.

International management is the leadership of integration of functional business areas within an international environment. Although grounded in theory, the practical implications of decision making for international management form the core of this paper. This paper is intended to serve as an introduction to selected critical, current topics affecting the business environment facing anyone (or any organisation) choosing to compete in the international arena - including within New Zealand - and as a second, topically-focused paper in international management.
