MGT 610 Global Business Management

Gatton 391

This course examines the globalization of business activity from a purely “top-management” point of view. It provides an integrative and comprehensive overview of the fundamental issues and challenges that confront the international firm. That is, rather than focus on specific business tasks and functions as they pertain to international business operations, the course is intended to help you understand international management issues and challenges such as: target market selection, modes of market entry, international strategy, organizational structure, location and control of overseas subsidiaries, and joint venture formation.

Although the majority of students may not experience top management decision-making responsibility and authority for quite some time, this course offers entry-level and middle managers exposure to the critical issues and challenges which do indeed affect day-to-day, functional management activity.

By the end of the semester, students should be able to identify, analyze, and understand the organizational impact of a wide variety of global management issues. In addition, students should be able to develop broad, strategic solutions and/or plans of action in response to any combination of market, political, socio-cultural, and/or competitive global forces.
