This course provides students with an in-depth understanding of the main theoretical and research perspectives, and range of main methodologies that have contributed to our knowledge of International Business. The focus will be on theoretical and research perspectives that have and continue to influence thinking about issues of central importance to the practice of International Business. Some of the important debates to which theorising about these different issues has given rise are discussed. What is International Business and how does it differ from domestic business? What is market globalisation and what are the drivers? What are societal and firm-level consequences of globalisation? This debate will also include why and when firms internationalise; how they select markets for entry; and how they choose their entry mode. Implications of these debates for both research and practice are explored. This will be discussed from the perspective of three levels of analysis: Country and Industry level; Firm-level; and Managerial level. Finally, the course familiarises students with academic literature in International Business, develops their ability to critically analyse and evaluate such literature, improve their oral/written communications skills, methodologies used in International Business research, as well as develop the ability to assess the validity of findings described in the current or recent International Business literature.
