Multinational Corporations and International Markets

Subject code: LB5932

Multinational Corporations (MNCs) are, beyond a doubt, among the most powerful global forces, maintaining footholds and assets across international boundaries – and in some cases, annual revenue exceeding the GDPs of small nations. This subject will familiarise you with the organisational structures of MNCs, the local-regional-global nexus of MNC operations environments, and crucial aspects of social-corporate responsibility. Through critical analysis of case studies, you will learn about operations and management in multinational/transnational environments.
