The module will cover aspects related to globalization, foreign direct investments (FDI), foreign market entry and the internationalization process of the firm. It elaborates on how firms encounter and chose to solve different managerial problems and how these relate to the strategy of the firm.

Another key issues in the course concerns the role of knowledge and experience of managers and the characteristics of the surrounding markets with particular emphasis on the relevance on cultural differences.
