This field is concerned broadly with the management of the business enterprise in a multinational context. It encompasses theoretical, technical and practical analyses of manufacturing, trading, service and financial firms, which may be operating at different stages of their internationalization process.
International management builds on a thorough understanding of the firm’s broader socio-political, socio-economic and industry-specific environments. Within each firm’s idiosyncratic setting, international management also requires an integrated understanding of accounting, finance, marketing, production and logistics, and strategic management. This field offers comprehensive coverage of these diverse environments while providing a rigorous training in core functional disciplines such as accounting, finance, strategic management and marketing.
All students receive a core education in financial accounting and corporate finance. From there, students may choose to focus on issues such as international fiscal and investment law, governance, or issues specific to regions like East Asia or banking in the Islamic world.
The International Business Relations field of study requires the completion of a minimum of four courses.
