    A brief analysis of the general features of the international management environment, including social, political, economic and technological contexts, leading to an ability to understand a range of international settings and begin to manage successfully internationally. The Pacific Rim and New Zealand’s main trading partnerships will be emphasised.

    International management is the leadership of integration of functional business areas within an international environment. The overall function of the various internal assessments is formative (targeted at learning) rather than summative (for grading purposes).

    The prescription of a mixture of didactic and case methods will ensure that students develop problem-solving skills that will become features of their life-long learning.

    Given that this is a second-year paper, it is expected that you will be in large part responsible for your own learning. Giving and receiving constructive feedback is an essential part of formative learning and being a manager. Hence it is considered important in this classroom.
