Internationalisation Strategies

Anyone who wishes to do international business should be primarily a strategist, capable of designing global strategies tailored to each target market. In this module, we analyse the main concepts of internationalisation strategies for exporting companies as well as several success stories of different companies.

Anyone involved in global business (export, subsidiaries, or displaced workers) negotiates with people from different cultures and languages. With culture knowledge of other countries, it is possible to avoid intercultural conflicts. The study of Intercultural Management will allow us to know to manage this important aspect of international business.

The final step in an Internationalisation Strategy is usually the implantation abroad (subsidiaries sales, production sites, or joint ventures).

Foreign direct investment (FDI) reflects the objective of obtaining a lasting interest by a resident entity in one economy (direct investor) in an entity resident in another country different from the investor (direct investment enterprise).

The organization and functions of the Export Department and the role of the Conference on Trade and Development and Investment (UNCTAD) will also be considered.

Finally, the principles of a Global Ethics for international business will also be analysed.
