Learning Outcomes Analyse economic and global trends, changing international trade patterns, foreign direct investment flows, differences in economic growth rates among countries, and the impact of cross-cultural differences to draw conclusions relevant to international firms. Develop an internationalisation strategy for a firm that wishes to expand abroad by taking into consideration the legal constraints, ethical and social issues, cross-cultural characteristics, economic environment, political factors and foreign exchange issues. Assess the impact of foreign exchange on the firm’s decision to internationalise. Develop a critical point of view on globalisation and its actors. The course is divided into two parts. Part I provides an overview of the international context and explores legal, cultural, social responsibility, strategic, collaborative and logistical challenges when operating internationally.
