Publication Year: 2013

[This document has not yet been rated] 585 views

Two major trends – globalizations and responsibility in business – have shaped recent developments in international business – and the way organizations and their leaders approach the challenges facing contemporary corporations. The first trend, globalization, is all pervasive. The second trend is more recent, but equally pervasive, and concerns the quest for responsibility in business. In this course, we will address both the "knowing‟ and the "doing‟ side of CSR and help you build a solid knowledge base and some fundamental skills (e.g., ethical reflection and stakeholder engagement). This knowledge will help you develop a well-informed approach to the wider social and ethical issues you will face in an international business career.

What possessed second semester seniors in a highly regarded business school to enroll in an elective class focusing on the study of lengthy novels written 150 years ago?

In this module, we study how winning in fast-growing emerging markets requires companies to tackle institutional voids, including lack of water, health, infrastructure, housing, etc. Institutional voids imply that customers in developing economies have needs which are unique compared with their counterparts in developed countries. Unique needs, coupled with high customer price sensitivity, translate into real challenges for many firms from developed economies. We are seeing the advent of new business models addressing institutional voids by bundling public goods and private goods together. The examples of bundling sewage and policing services along with housing in new Indonesian satellite cities illustrate how firms can make money by providing infrastructures and institutions typically provided by governments. What makes money, however, is not always socially optimal...

Sustainable development in emerging economies is of worldwide concern to many different stakeholders due to the global impacts that billions of people will collectively have and are having on climate change, energy supplies, natural resources (renewable and nonrenewable), employment conditions, working standards, and other critical issues. However, given the lack of a global governance framework for multinational corporations (MNCs), international organizations are important to ensure that MNCs operate in a sustainable way. International organizations can provide policy and partnering solutions that promote multiple actors’ interests. They can also act as arbiters and standards setting bodies.
