Students on the University of Hull Executive MBA intake 35 delivered on location in Bahrain, will be welcoming their next lecturer Professor Robin Pearson discussing International Business module between 27th-30th September 2017.
Business strategies and operations, even those that operate wholly within their local or national markets, are subject to more and more competitive forces of international origin as a result of increasing international market integration.
Therefore, MBA students need to have a good understanding of international perspectives and be able to analyse and assess the implications of the internationalisation process for business strategies and operations. The developing international crisis confirms the need for continuing assessment of the international dimension of business and throws new light on longstanding themes.
This module has been designed to provide an understanding of the internationalisation process and to develop analytical and appraisal frameworks that are useful to examine the implications of changing international business environments for business strategies and operations.
The module begins with an analysis of the international business environment and how it relates to and impacts on business. In particular, it engages with the globalisation debate and issues of regulation of business in a world with fewer barriers between markets.
Students look at the firm within its international context, from both a theoretical and practical perspective including small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large multinational corporations. The module concludes by looking at specific issues that impact on the firm as a result of increasing internationalisation.
All students should also refer to their programme handbook for additional information including guidance on examinations, plagiarism and overlong assignments. For non-Business School students this can be found at:
MDCI would like to remind students that they should be on time and attend the full module to get the most out of the module with Professor Robin Pearson and met the requirements of the University.
