While the field of international business is sometimes divided into macro issues (e.g., foreign direct investment drivers, political risk, etc.) and meso/micro issues (e.g., organizational and individual behaviours in international markets), this course will provide an overview of each of these areas by sampling an array of readings and perspectives that collectively describe the domain of international business. The basic goal of this seminar is to prepare PhD students in International Business by providing a broad overview of the international business field, key theories, trends, phenomena, and the methods that are used to study them. We will also examine how the study of international business connects with other management disciplines—strategy and organizational behaviour in particular—as well as with other academic areas such as economics, political science and international development studies. Cross-national and cross-cultural research will be considered throughout the course and topics of special interest, including alliances, knowledge management, and networks will be included.
