21591 Transnational Management

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.



This subject examines the management challenges associated with the strategic and operational management of organisations whose activities stretch across national boundaries. The subject develops a conceptual framework which enables students to understand the interplay between the multinational corporation, the country in which it does business, including an understanding of the psychological, social, political and economic forces useful for managers and consultants involved in multinational organisations and cross-border management. Through theory, cases, readings and research articles, the subject considers approaches to the development of strategy, organisational capabilities, and management challenges for operating in the global economy. The subject provides comprehensive understanding of managerial processes such as, cultural diversity, the entrepreneurial process (identifying and acting on new opportunities), the integrative learning process (linking and leveraging those pockets of entrepreneurial initiative), and the leadership process (articulating a vision and inspiring others to follow).
