The course is designed for students with different backgrounds who have an interest in business and its applications to other 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.
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 an overview of topics and areas of research in the field. The ultimate goal is to develop an ability to identify opportunities for future research. The course is organized into two parts. The first part focuses on different theoretical perspectives. The second part discusses state‐of‐the‐art research on specific topics and areas.
This is a discussion‐based course. Students are expected to attend and be prepared for every session.
Session preparation includes reading all required assigned material for the session. During each session, the discussion will be based on the papers for discussion.
Lectures and workshops where students are expected to present and discuss pre‐assigned readings.
