Course Description

The IBGT course is devoted to an analysis of the global business environment, concentrating particularly on the world trading system including the increasingly important role played by the international financial institutions. The IBGT course, focusing more on macro-economic business patterns, processes and institutions, provides the basis for the IBMNE which looks more at the micro-level and the individual firm in a global business environment. STUDENT LEARNING EXPERIENCE: The lecture programme provides an overview of international business concepts and practices, and is supported by suggested readings from the course text.The compulsory weekly tutorials comprise a mix of conventional Teaching Assistant-supported group exercises and audio-visual exercises. The tutorials are used to support and develop concepts and theories taught in the lectures. The audio-visual sections allow students to observe the practices of companies in the international business area.
