Course Objectives.

Students completing this course should possess the basic knowledge and confidence to go and live abroad and to begin to manage teams amidst workplace diversity within a Host Country. They should understand and foresee the political, economic, legal and technological constraints of conducting business across cultural barriers, and possess some of the skills required to bridge cross-cultural communication gaps.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course will acquaint the international graduate student with some core concepts and major principles of International Management used by key executives of Multinational Corporations (MNCs) and Transnational Corporations (TNCs) in the United States and abroad. It is not an easy task to manage a domestic company, but this task becomes more difficult and subject to much greater risk once a firm decides it will “go international.” Important decisions have to be made, such as whether functional units such as Accounting, Design, Manufacturing, Marketing, Sales, Purchasing, Quality Control, Research and Development will be managed at home or abroad. Staffing becomes subject to difficult choices, such as the right “mix” of “expat” Parent Country Nationals (PCNs) with local Host Country Nationals (HCNs) or even Third Country Nationals (TCNs).

Whenever managers are sent abroad to live and to work, a risk of failure emerges. Even with proper preparation for living as an “expat” in a foreign country, the risk of failure (that the employee will decide to abort the assignment and return home before the assignment is completed) can be as high as 80% for the employee, even higher for family including spouse and children. Most foreign assignments are for three years’ duration, but failure is likely to occur within the first month or two. It can take up to 18 months to prepare an employee and her/his family to successfully work abroad, and at least half as long to prepare the same people for repatriation. As it is expensive for a corporation to send its managers and their families on foreign assignments, it is important to optimize their success in order to amortize this investment. Part of this course will focus on preparing managers for success in the international environment. Without having spent significant periods of time working abroad, a manager’s career pathway is likely to encounter promotion barriers, particularly at the higher levels.
