授業の概要 Course Overview


The course enables students to make ethical and informed decisions with a better understanding of the global business environment, in line with NUCB's mission.
How difficult it is to manage an organization serving different markets in multiple countries? Multinational Corporations (MNCs) lose billions of potential business dollars every year because they simply ignore or unable to understand the expectations of people in foreign cultures and the way that they do business. What is the secret to successfully manage an international corporation or play an effective role in the management team? This course will address this challenge by expanding our knowledge about employees, management, and intricacies of foreign operations and associated risks. This course will provide a framework for understanding cross-cultural differences and using such knowledge in country-specific management practices and policies. Moreover, the course will provide a guide for understanding the strategic issues associated with diverse operational environments. We will discuss the social and ethical responsibilities of managers while dealing with different situations while reinforcing NUCB’s mission of educating innovative and ethical leaders.
Upon completion of this course, students are expected to understand the impact of people, values, and culture on multinational corporations.

評価の留意事項 Notes on Evaluation Criteria

1. Attend all sessions and actively participate in each. (Missing sessions will reduce your participation grades).

2. Class participation is about "attitude, preparation, listening, participation frequency as well as relevance and impact". Better preparation can lead to good arguments and focused discussion. Try to spend more time on cases, look for additional information online before sessions.

3. Active participation in the small group discussions before each session as well as in-class activities is compulsory to get good participation marks. (Joining class after small group discussion, not contributing in group discussion or activities, or taking a break during group discussion will impact participation grade).

4. The final report is all about your research and writing skills. Final reports with a logical structure, flow, and in-depth analysis receive good grades. Use of course or other basic frameworks can explain your understanding of the subject. Presentation of facts is important as well, a report using stats, graphs, diagrams, and figures is easy to read and understand compared to a text-only report. Formatting instruction like headings and proper referencing must be considered to obtain a high score.
