Course Description International business occurs whenever an individual, corporation or public institution located in one country engages in a commercial transaction with an individual, corporation or public institution in another country. International business transactions take the form of assets, goods or services exported or imported. Trade in financial assets is called international or foreign investment. Such investment may be portfolio or indirect where it is between independent economic entities, or direct where it is undertaken within the same economic entity. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is made outside the home country of the investing company, but inside the investing company. A company that engages in FDI and owns or controls value-added activities in more than one country is called multinational enterprise (MNE). Control over the use of resources transferred remains with the investor. FDI consists of a package of assets and intermediate products, such as capital, technology, management skills, access to markets and entrepreneurship. At the dawn of the 21 st Century, nations are more economically integrated than at any other point in human history. This presents business leaders with unprecedented opportunities and challenges. On the one hand, the opportunity to sell to global markets rather than a single national market increases the potential profitability of nearly every kind of business activity. Furthermore, the sharp differences among nations in wage rates and national resource endowments allow multinational firms to create value by locating different aspects of the value chain in those countries where they can be undertaken most efficiently. On the other hand, globalization increases the number and range of potential competitors in nearly every industry, and the challenges of effectively managing a multinational enterprise can be substantially greater than those confronting a firm largely based in a single country. 2. Course Objectives This course seeks to equip future business leaders to exploit these opportunities and cope with these challenges. The course will accomplish that goal by providing students with a 3 systematic understanding of the fundamental aspects of the global business environment that influence business decisions and behavior. Students must understand the structural economic factors that determine locational advantages, the way government policies both promote and restrain the integration of national economies with the global economy, and the impact of volatility in the global macroeconomic environment on international business strategy. These issues will be studied using the analytical tools and concepts of international economics, and case studies will be used to relate these concepts to actual business problems. 3. Textbooks and Reading The main textbook of the course is: 1. Griffin R. W. and Pustay M.W. International business, Prentice Hall, 4th edition Course participants will be given a package of additional reading in some sessions.
