Knowing how to do business in foreign markets is a key competency and skill for every manager due to an increasing globalisation and interconnectedness of international firms. The jurisdictions covered in this degree include some of the most important foreign markets for international firms. Learners will get insight in how to do business in these markets using a structured market entry and development process based on current market data and a detailed analysis of the business culture.
The course is designed to expose students to a range of business and cultural topics. Students will develop abilities in critical and interdisciplinary thinking; they will be able to apply these abilities to their understanding and evaluation of the costs and benefits of successfully doing business in a foreign market; and they will be able to communicate effectively about the strategy, decision, and implementation of cross-border commerce.
Students can complete any three courses to earn the PGCert in Doing Business Abroad. Students will earn an accredited Award for each course completed.
