This unit provides students with a framework for understanding the field of international trade. The unit examines the environment for international trade and investment, particularly political, social, economic, technological, environmental and other factors that influence strategic firm-level plans and senior management decisions about a firm's cross-border trade and investment activities. Students will be required to understand relevant macro-level international trade and investment theories and the global system and issues surrounding the conduct of international business from an organisational strategy and operational perspective. An applied understanding of international trade and investment will be encouraged through students analysing and examining the constraints affecting entry to new markets and specific market entry options and global business activities.
