COURSE PREREQUISITES

The course is designed for students coming from different backgrounds with an interest in international business and its applications to different fields and topics. Although a basic knowledge of management, strategy, and economics is helpful, no specific prerequisites are required. Students are expected to attend the entire course and take the final exam.

AIM

The course aims to offer a systematic foundational knowledge of the theoretical building blocks of international business research, the most updated debates on theories and methods, and an overview of topics and areas of research in the field to ultimately develop an ability to identify opportunities for future research. 

The course is organized into two parts. The first part focuses on different theoretical perspectives and also addresses methodological challenges specific to international business research. In the second part, state-of-the-art research on specific topics and areas is discussed. During the course, additional seminars and activities will be organized to enrich the discussion. Although these are not part of the course students are warmly encouraged to participate.
 

Teaching style
Lectures and workshops where students are expected to present and discuss pre-assigned readings.
