The process of internationalisation, together with the continuous technology improvements of the last three decades, has brought unprecedented flows of goods, services, labour and capital across national boundaries. World trade has become increasingly important, foreign direct investment is growing and the competitive pressures on many industries and firms have intensified.
There are big challenges for companies that operate internationally, as they become engaged in modes of business that are different from those to which they are accustomed domestically. Therefore, it is important to develop a better understanding of how these multinational firms are managed and controlled.
This programme will enable you to understand how firms become and remain international in scope. You will learn to apply management theories and techniques that are important in an increasingly multinational business environment. New research findings, case studies and comparative perspectives on the management of internationally operating firms will help you to understand these issues in more detail, and that the local adaptation of business and management concepts developed elsewhere is crucial.
This programme combines advanced business management modules with a global focus, benefiting from Surrey Business School’s emphasis on enterprise and innovation.
Surrey Business School is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and by the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
