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

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2024
Angebotsmuster Jedes Frühjahrsem.
Dozierende John Bradford Jensen (bradford.jensen@unibas.ch)
Inhalt The objective of the course is to develop an understanding 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, regulation) 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.
Lernziele

Literatur The principle reading for the course consists of academic articles that are available on ADAM.

Other articles and all the cases are available from the Harvard Business Publishing website. The readings available from the Harvard Business Publishing website are preceded by “HBP” in the syllabus. The cost of the course pack is about US$30

Please note: There is a fair bit of reading for this course. I do not expect you to master all the intricate details of each reading. I am mostly interested in you distilling the main big idea in the reading and being able to apply the idea in more realistic settings. Learning to discern the important idea in a reading and being able to apply it is a key objective of the course.

Bemerkungen This course is part of the Summer School in Law, Business and Economic Policy.
