International Business

Aims & Objectives

The aims of this module is to enable the learner to:

  • Understand the effect of international influences, including the role of foreign direct investment, world trade bodies and agencies on the performance of international organisations.
  • Understand Globalisation which has become such an omnipresent force on the business environment that even those organisations who do not engage in international trade directly can still be affected by it.
  • It is increasingly important that learners have an understanding of the international business environment to ensure that they can be aware of emerging opportunities and threats for organisations of various size and scope.
