Description

Competing internationally and succeeding in a complex and dynamic globalized world is not an easy task for organizations. Beyond the challenges of national competition, global firms often have to deal with political uncertainty, exchange rates, diverse consumer needs, mismatch of local management style, complex logistics, unfamiliar cultures, different time zones, among others.

The Global Business Management track will discuss strategies to enter and manage operations in foreign countries more effectively, considering current world complexities and how companies can thrive in this new global arena. Specific focus will be given to Latin America, with a two-fold perspective: opportunities for investment and growth for foreign firms, as well as structural and cultural aspects that may affect the internationalization process of firms from this region.

OBJECTIVES

At the end of this module, students should be capable of:

  • Interpreting changes in the global political and economic environment and their risks and opportunities for organizations.
  • Assessing the role of world organizations and trade agreements in foreign trade and investment.
  • Analyzing the competitive global environment and drivers for the internationalization of companies.
  • Designing entry and ownership strategies to support companies in internationalization process from and to Latin America.
  • Evaluating alternatives for managerial problems arising from operating in different geographies, cultures, economies and political/administrative environments.
  • Optimizing leadership skills in a multicultural work environment.
  • Analyzing structural and cultural specificities of doing business in Latin America.

CONTENT

  • Global political economy and trends
  • Global strategy
  • The quest for global efficiency
  • Managing people in cross-cultural contexts
  • Creating value internationally

FDC offers a limited number of spots for students (and recent graduates) of MBA and EMBA programs to participate in our EMBA program for a short-duration (a six-day residential module at our main campus, preceded by preparatory distance education assignment work).

This program enables interested students to study together with, and build relationships with, FDC’s EMBA students, a cohort whose members work as senior managers in a broad range of Brazilian companies. This experience is unparalleled as a true immersive experience.
