Qualifikations- und Lernziele des Moduls :

This module addresses the needs of future managers operating in a global economy, who need to effectively respond to the unique challenges associated with the increasing globalization of business. The increasing internationalization of product and services markets means that even those not actually working in a large multinational company need to have the skills required for managing in a global economy.
Overall, this module aims to maximize the potential of students to work competently in a management capacity within a company operating in an international context. Specifically, students completing this module will develop a working framework of management in a global context. They will be able to recognize cultural, social, economic, historical, and political differences that affect strategic decision making and effectively respond to these differences when planning business activities. They will be able to identify and effectively manage challenges associated with operating in an international/global business environment, such as the procurement and coordination of resources and human resource management.
Students will develop specific operational skills associated with managing in a global context. They will be able to gather relevant information and conduct reliable assessments of the opportunities and risks related to business activities in different geographical market regions and specific national markets. They will be able to select and implement appropriate strategies for market development and market entry, and develop sound business plans that successfully implement specific organizational, marketing, and distribution strategies in selected regions/countries.
