This course provides the theoretical framework and practical experience of international business in the unpredictable and rapidly changing environment. This is a "big picture" course about different aspects of international business: main global trends, influencing strategies of international companies, competitiveness, and globalization, the organizational response to environmental changes. A key aspect of the course is to have an opportunity to observe and assess the international companies’ performance with the emphasis on a global economic situation.
