65305-01 - Vorlesung: Global Strategy for Multinational Companies 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende Bradford Jensen (bradford.jensen@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The objective of the course is to develop an understanding of the range of options multinational companies (MNCs) have for responding to challenges and opportunities in the global economy. The course will investigate how MNCs respond in the market (taking the environment as given) and how MNCs pursue “non-market” strategies to influence their operating environment (seeking to affect public policy).
The course will review and apply foundational conceptual frameworks from international trade [discussed in Rolf Weder’s course Advanced International Trade and Business] for how MNCs should respond in a given policy environment – how best to adjust to changes in exchange rates, tariffs, non-tariff barriers, etc.
The course will present foundational ideas from economics, political science, and international political economy regarding how the policy environment is determined. The course will investigate the range of policies that can influence firm behavior (e.g. trade, tax, competition policy) and how firms have attempted to influence the policy environment through non-market strategy in the past.
The key ideas in the course will be applied in “real-world” settings in a series of case studies.
