Most, if not all, companies require internationalisation strategies, be they simply export or franchising arrangements, or complex and risky international joint ventures and/or foreign direct investment. These activities require knowledge and skills in understanding the international business environment. The MSc Startegy and International Business provides a rigorous and comprehensive coverage of strategy and international business issues in both developed and developing countries.
