The course focuses on identifying and meeting the needs of specific international target markets through close interaction with managers from other functional areas such as promotions, finance, accounting, and human resources.

International Management

We are witnessing a fundamental change in the nature of geopolitics. No longer will the world's business leaders focus on one or two stock markets, currencies, economies or political leaders. Today's business environment is too complex and interdependent for that. Nation states and multinational corporations will continue to be powerful and important. Global networks involving technological, business, social and environmental interest groups will continue to be powerful. Future economic and trade efforts will increasingly be characterised by the search for common ground, productive partnerships and mutual benefit. This course will focus on developing a deeper understanding of how and why management practices and processes may differ around the world, and on developing the skills necessary to operate successfully in this international business environment.

International finance

The increasing reliance on closely integrated foreign operations has opened up a parallel world of finance in every multinational firm that has been overlooked until now. This course therefore examines many aspects of financial decision-making in global firms that have triggered these changes. It briefly explains the overall structure of global finance, outlining an analytical framework that serves as a guide for critical financial decisions regarding financing, investment, risk management, and incentive management in the multinational firm. This framework emphasizes the need to align opposing forces in order for multinational firms to gain a competitive advantage in their internal capital markets.

International negotiation and communication

Intercultural communication is international communication that crosses national borders and involves many different cultures. There are a wide range of communication issues that naturally arise when moving across national borders and in organizations that are made up of individuals from different countries who represent different religious, social, ethnic and educational backgrounds. Intercultural communication seeks to understand how people from different countries and cultures behave, communicate and perceive the world around them quite differently. From a management perspective, it studies situations where people from different cultures interact in a business environment. The course therefore aims to gain an understanding of the differences in language, customs, social attributes, thought patterns and other aspects of the cultures of different groups of people. Understanding cross-cultural communication is essential for conducting international business. This course aims to provide this understanding.

Geopolitics and globalisation

Geopolitics and Globalization is a course that focuses on the fundamental features of the increasing interdependence of economies caused by the revolution in information and transportation technologies. It focuses on its main implications for different groups of countries as well as for the political and cultural balance of the world. Today, everyone uses the word 'globalisation', but there is little agreement on what it means, and it is not surprising that there is even less agreement on whether it is good, bad or mixed for the world economy. This course will not resolve these debates, but following it will allow for a more accurate and correct understanding of what the term means and what globalization means for the world economy and politics.
