This unit is designed to introduce students to the issues involved in undertaking business in the global market place. We examine why businesses engage in international trade and business and consider the role that economics, politics, culture and ethics play in the decision to operate internationally. How organisations evaluate, plan and undertake international engagement and expansion are considered. We analyse the appropriate means for engaging in international trade and expansion given the nature of and circumstances facing the organisation. We introduce students to concepts of international financing, marketing and human resource management.
