Course Objective:

In this course we examine global strategy issues. We begin with the forces that determine the international competitiveness of a company and industry. This analysis leads us further to examination of nation-specific, region-specific, industry-specific, and firm-specific factors that determine competitiveness. We then examine the economic and structural environments, including institutional settings, regulations, and business practices, which foreign companies face when they enter foreign markets. While these market-specific factors remain significant impediments to operate in international markets, a growing number of firms are outsourcing various business services worldwide. One of the main questions this course addresses then is whether national borders will no longer matter.
