Over­view & Con­tents

IB Strategies is ded­ic­ated to man­aging mul­tina­tional com­pan­ies, in­ter­na­tional know­ledge trans­fer and re­gional strategies. The key area IB Mar­kets cov­ers mar­ket-entry strategies, emer­ging mar­kets and glob­al­iz­a­tion. IB Re­sources fo­cuses on in­ter­na­tional HR man­age­ment, cross-­cul­tural man­age­ment and mul­ti­cul­tural teams. Be­sides in-depth know­ledge within these three key areas, stu­dents are also provided the link­ages and in­ter­re­la­tions among and between these fields lead­ing to both, a solid over­view of in­ter­na­tional busi­ness as well as spe­cial­ized know­ledge. Ad­di­tion­ally, stu­dents will ac­quire es­sen­tial so­cial skills and ab­il­it­ies such as present­a­tion ex­pert­ise, ef­fect­ive com­mu­nic­a­tion ab­il­it­ies and team-­work skills. This is real­ized by us­ing a se­lec­ted mix of teach­ing meth­ods in­clud­ing case stud­ies, in­ter­act­ive dis­cus­sions, team-­work assign­ments, sem­inars and on­go­ing present­a­tions.
