International business involves dealing with complexity. Crossing borders, crossing jurisdictions and crossing cultures means that home-country values, procedures and behaviours cannot be taken for granted, nor imposed on foreign counterparts. Multinationals and SMEs face fundamental challenges of governance which cannot be resolved by mere compliance or formulae like corporate social responsibility. This subject applies an ethical decision-making approach to Asian and European business environments with focus upon networks, patronage and trust, corruption, leadership, transparency and reputational risk. One-hour lectures are combined with two-hour interactive sessions featuring real-life decision-making dilemmas as they affect employees in offshore locations.
A 2-hour end-of-semester examination (50%) and written assignment(s) totalling not more then 5000 words (50%).
