LB5201 - Managing Business in a Global Context

Credit points: 3
Year: 2014
Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by: School of Business (pre 2015)

Managing Business in a Global Context delivers a solid business perspective of the complexities faced by executives and managers operating both locally and within the global marketplace. This subject emphasises research, critical appraisal, and problem solution synthesis within highly-competitive (and often unfamiliar) business situations. Within this cross-border (cultural, trade, finance and management) business perspective, issue-based strategic and theoretical situations are considered from management performance and customer capture perspectives. Hence, this subject requires students to contribute individually, and in team activities and to apply theory across business situations.

  • Understand the complexities of executing business in a global environment from: a global enterprise perspective; a global marketplace perspective, and from local performance, servicing, economic and customer competitive perspectives;
