Module overview

This module is unusual in the MBA programme as it invites students to focus their research and analysis on the global environment rather than internally on their firm. With this external focus in mind the module examines the impact of globalisation and the international macroeconomic context for global businesses. The module adopts the PESTLE approach to examine the combined impact that political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental trends have on organisations and their survival in a global environment, especially where corporate responsibility and ethical behaviour is concerned. In addition, the module focuses on the impact of multiple stakeholder groups on business performance. These three external contexts will be researched, evaluated and analysed in order to generate an understanding of the factors and their impact upon various global businesses.
