MBAD6241: Global Perspectives

Sample Video: Practitioners’ Corner


Globalization and technological advances have created exciting opportunities for managers to pursue strategies in markets around the world. These developments also present managers with enormous complexity in terms of understanding diverse national environments. This course has been designed to introduce a global perspective to the MBA Program.

The course starts at a broad level, raising questions about globalization and its implications, then proceeds to survey the international landscape. We will focus on identifying differences in national environments, categorized into three major themes: the economic context, the political context and the socio-cultural context. We will examine the effects of the international context at different levels, analyzing the role of international institutions such as the World Trade Organization, national governments, non-government organizations and competing firms.
