The broad and complex challenges of conducting business across national borders, from micro (e.g. management of cross-cultural and geographically-diverse teams) to macro (e.g. development of global strategies).
As a complement to MANT 460, this paper focuses on international management approaches (and their implications) for businesses and other organisations. Building on a foundation in trade theory and the nature of competition, this paper examines contextual factors that affect international activities, including cultural differences, management of expatriates, ethics, environment and sustainability, politics, and economic and financial conditions.
