2 2/ 4 4. Course content The aim of the course is to further deepen the understanding of current patterns and processes in international business, with special focus on the new context of corporate internationalisation in the single internal European market, and the emergence of different structures of international companies in rapidly growing economies in Asia. It is a direct continuation of the preceding course 'Internationellt företagande' (EP 5003), within term 5 in the Business and Economics undergraduate programme, language track. The course contains one single module at 15 higher education credits, based on literature covering a number of central themes related to theory, methodology and practice in international business research. The different themes represent various crucial aspects of the international activities of the firm and the complexity of challenges that these companies are encountered with at the world market-place, illustrated through casestudies of separate manufacturing and service sectors, with Europe and Asia representing the main geographical context. These case-reports will be carried out through the application of relevant theoretical frameworks derived from the recommended literature, through the practical training to collect, interpret and systematize empirical information. The following themes are examples of areas in focus during the course: The internationalisation process of the firm, where the general theories of trade, foreign direct investment, location and barriers to entry etc. are confronted with the new realities met by firms in the single internal European market, as well as in newly emerging economies in Asia; Cultural differences, and how these differences are affecting organization, structure and human resource management in multinational companies; International strategy and organization, focusing on strategies which are used to organize and to carry out international activities with regard to local adjustment as well as global scale economies, and traditional as well as new forms of relations between the parent company and host market subsidiaries; Functional elements in the internationalisation process, e.g. international marketing and distribution, supply chain management, global sourcing, adjustment to international accounting standards, financial management, and research & development; Ethical aspects of the internationalisation of the firm, e.g. Corporate Social Responsibility, Codes of Conduct, Core Labour Standards, and the contribution to sustainable development and global justice. Furthermore, national characteristics and structural similarities and dissimilarities of European and Asian firms will be discussed and assessed in a regional and global context - in particular focusing on companies from France, Germany, Spain, China and Japan. The national characteristics are, in addition, put into a larger business environment context related to politics, legal framework, labour, macroeconomic conditions, trade policies and business cultures in Europe and Asia respectively.
