Flexible Learning That Enhances Your Potential
Micro-credential certification in the Managing the International Economy (MBAGB)
Changes in the global business environment continue at a rapid and often unpredictable pace. Some of these developments have challenged assumptions about globalisation and economic integration. The challenges for international management reflect this dynamism and the increasing unpredictability of global economic and political events. The growth of emerging markets is reshaping the global economic context. In addition, rapid advances in communication technology have not only accelerated globalisation but also provided a means for those who seek political and economic changes to organise and influence their leaders for more responsible governance. Furthermore, concerns about sustainable development have prompted governments, companies and NGOs to consider alternate approaches to business and governance. Thus, managers must keep up-to-date with knowledge and information on the changing scenarios of the international economy to identify the emerging challenges and opportunities for international management.
This module gives an extensive understanding of the underlying concepts and practices of management practices and strategies in the international economy. Students will explore topics relating to the political and economic environment, the role of cultural differences in international management, international strategic management, and organisational behaviour and human resource management in international contexts. Students will also explore the ethical considerations faced by international managers in decision-making.
