As things arenow steadily returning to normalcy, I very much look forward to meeting you all in the comingacademic term.This course is designed to provide a general understanding of the managerial challenges thatglobal businesses face as they seek to integrate and adapt to the everchanging globalenvironment. The aim of the course is to gain an insight into the diverse international setting inwhich multinational businesses operate, and by examining the key distinctions betweeninternational trade and direct investment, the complexed organisational and managerialchallenges will be further be assessed. The course also highlights the increasing challengesrelated to the distribution of resources and sustainability on a global scale, by discussing howglobal businesses can forge a way to strike a balance between profit-maximation and corporatesocial responsibility.It is needless to say that it is crucial that you attend both the lectures and the seminars. There is adirect correlation between the failure to attend and failing the course. Students are expected toprepare for the seminars by completing the key reading tasks each week before the scheduledsessions. The readings will be made available on the Moodle site in advance. Students areencouraged to read as much as possible to satisfy their specific interests. Various readingmaterials in the form of journal articles, book chapters and reports have been selected for thiscourse to give students a holistic learning experience. The materials and class lectures shouldprovide you with the tools to develop your individual critical thinking techniques whenanalysing the complexities of global business as we see it today.This handbook provides all the essential information about this module including the aims andlearning outcomes, the schedule of teaching and learning activities, assessment tasks, readingrecommendations and, where applicable, any additional resources that you may need as youprogress throughout the course. Please read through it at the start of the term so that you areaware of the key details and important dates throughout the course of the coming months.Finally, we hope you enjoy the lectures and workshops that the team have planned and find theminteresting, challenging and rewarding. We look forward to welcoming you all back to campusvery soon.The Global Business and Sustainability Team (GB&S) 3 | P a g e Key contacts The list below provides contact details of the module team.Name and detailsModule Leader: Dr Young-Chan KimLocation: QM164Email: [email protected]Tel: 020 8331 9076Office hours: Every Wednesday between 1100-1300 or by e-mail forappointmentphotoModule Tutor: Prof. Jane LethbridgeLocation: QM151Email: [email protected]Tel: 8331 7781Office hours:photoModule Tutor: Mr. Ron GibsonLocation: QM151Email: [email protected]Tel: 8331 8000Office hours:photoModule Tutor: Dr. Navneet WalliaLocation: QM163Email: [email protected]Tel: 8331 8000Office hours:photoModule Tutor: Dr. Richmond LampteyLocation: QM151Email: [email protected]Tel: 8331 8000Office hours:photo 4 | P a g e Module details and learning outcomesHost Faculty: Economics and International BusinessHost School: Business SchoolNumber of Credits: 30 creditsTerm(s) of delivery: Term 1 / 2 and 3Site(s) of delivery: Maritime• Provide a comprehensive understanding of the key factors on which international businessdecisions are based;• Develop an understanding and appreciation of the similarities and differences in theinternational business environment;• Distinguish the imperatives underpinning international trade and foreign direct investment;• Provide an understanding of the principles of the internationalisation process and drawimplications for business management.On completing this course successfully, you will be able to:1.

After choosing one of theoptions below, students will develop a more specific essay with an argument from theresearch in journal articles within the general umbrella topic.Topic a: The recent IPCC report, published in July 2021, highlighted that “unless there areimmediate, rapid and large-scale reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, limiting warming toclose to 1.5°C or even 2°C will be beyond reach”. Using examples from two sectors, explain someof the decisions that companies will have to make to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions andhow these may impact on stakeholders.Topic b: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Reporting- Transparency versus greenwashing?Provide a critical comparative essay using 2 companies, journals into each argument, thecompanies CSR reports, stakeholder releases, and credible news sources.Topic c: Critically examine how impact investors could catalyse the realization of five (5) of the 17United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. Draw on two theories and provide examplesin your analysis.Topic d: Select a technology of your choice. Some examples of contemporary technologies includewireless 3-D printing, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence, IoT, cloudcomputing, Blockchain etc. Analyse these technologies using concepts and frameworks discussedin the module, specifically, the following key aspects: 12 | P a g e 1. Background: Discuss the background and evolution of the technology.2. Map out Anderson & Tushman’s technology cycle. Identify discontinuities, periods offerments and incremental change and the present phase of technology. Analyse if adominant design exists, when it is likely to appear and which design could be establishedas a dominant design.3. Map out S-curve in Technological Improvement: Describe how the performance oftechnology has changed over time by explaining its key performance characteristics, anddiverse performance measures. Identify any discontinuities and their impact on S-curve.4. Identify different adopter categories and give examples of firms/industries/individuals thatfall under specific adopter categories for this technology. Justify if technology has crossedthe chasm i.e. transition from early adopters to early majority.5. Identify different innovations, first movers and market leaders in this technology. Basedupon your research, forecast the future of this technology.All students should liaise with your tutors during the face-to-face tutorial on your chosen topicsduring the third week, with a draft to be submitted by the 25th October 2021. The draft is a 400-word outline/plan (NO bullet-point contents) for the forthcoming essay with a minimum of 10literature references (80% peer reviewed journals) including examples of in-line citation andreferencing in Harvard Style.Please note that the above is a mandatory requirement, and should you miss the session/submissionor there may be a penalty of 7% of your final grade.Marking Criteria Marksallocatedtocriteria:FocusDoes the essay set up a clear essay question to address?

The online management simulation– PhoneVentures was developed by the digital publisher Edumundo.co.uk.In this simulation, each group of students (consisting of approx. 5 students per team- Maximum 5)manage their own globally operating Smart Phone company. In a highly competitive setting,actually playing against the other student teams within this module, the companies have todetermine their international strategic business plan and conducting internal and external analysis(such as the overseas markets, trends, news items, Hofstede’s culture differences, financials, stock& demand, HRM performances, etc.). Based on this strategic plan and analysis each team has totake operational decisions on country and global level such as: (online) global marketing, localcountry marketing, HRM investments and projects, R&D investments, warehouse contracts, loans,logistic service provider analysis, etc. etc.The simulation lasts for 6 weeks and runs over Reading week. Students are to ensure they meet,discuss weekly entries, and enter the weekly decisions on time each week according to theschedule. Each week, one round is being played, which indicates one year of operations within themanagement simulation and submit at 1600 every Monday.Following presentation submission, groups will complete a Q&A session by asking questions ofthe submitted presentations. Student groups who do not ask questions and engage with the activitywill risk losing 10% of their own presentation grade.Students will complete a peer observation/assessment for the group members which willindividualise the grades of the group members.Due to Covid and government restrictions, if presentations are allowed, they may beperformed face-to-face, if unable to present face-to-face, presentations will be provided invideo format online. Details will be confirmed in accordance with the university’s COVIDpolicies closer to the period.Use of Adobe Rush is recommended to join together individual videos into one presentation;however, any software may be used as long as the video is accessible. Our expectations of thecontents of each presentation are detailed below.For students arriving late or failing to join a group and unable to take part in the simulation game,there are alternative assessments for B1 & B2. These are noted separately in Moodle. Discuss withyour tutor. The deadlines of presentation and Final Reflective Report remain the same withadjustments on focus for each.B1: Group Presentation (20-30 minutes)The presentation will have four critical parts:1. Strategic planPresent a detailed strategic plan including your competitive strategy. Explain the relations betweenthese strategic choices and the external global market analysis. 14 | P a g e 2. Operational decisionsPresent which operational decisions you’ve taken each round, in line with your strategic plan.• Explain why you have chosen to enter certain countries (based on which analysis’conclusions?) and why you haven’t entered others.• Explain how you managed your local inventory levels and what influence this has at yourcosts, customer service and Logistic Service Provider decision.• Explain how the strategy behind the chosen organization structure, hired management teamand HR decisions.3. Results• Finance: Present a brief overview of your company’s financial position. Are you makingprofits? Did you owner’s capital grow? What’s the company’s current cash position? Whatwould be the total value of your company at the moment?• HRM: Present the Staff numbers over the past years and include their Motivation andEducation levels.4. Conclusion: This section should discuss the lessons that your team has learnt from thesimulation and what (hypothetically) would be the subsequent strategy/plan for the remainingperiods in the simulation.DocumentationAs soon as possible after your presentation, you must submit your group’s PPT slides to thecourse’s Moodle page. Please list the full names and student number on the first page of yourslides.Assessment criteria: Your presentation will be marked on:Marks: Criteria40% Content and research. Please see section 5.3.1 for guidance on what shouldbe contained in your presentation.15% Quality of the PowerPoint presentation (eg design, legibility, organisation(use of bullet points), grammatically and accurately spelt contents.)25% Delivery (e.g. timing, confidence, posture, eye contact with the audience,use of voice, minimum use of notes, professionalism, group coordination)20% Answers to audience and tutor’s questionsB2: Individual Reflection ReportYou need to individually write an academic reflection report about your experience participating inthe simulation game. The report needs to contain the following elements:1) Simulation Game Play (700 words)– Explain using one of the Key Performance Indicators your team selected, the process you wentthrough in the game. How the KPI was managed, decisions made, outcomes of those decisions, and 15 | P a g e why.– Provide a detained narrative of your personal experience in your role while playing the game.Decisions you made, how they were received by the team, outcomes of those decisions and why.Focus should be on areas that you would have made a different choice, and why you believe thealtered choice would have been more successful.2) Teamwork/Group Dynamics (800 words)– Provide an example of the functioning of the group, the teamwork experienced, comparing it to atheory of team structure (Functional, Inter-working, Self-managed, taskforce, cross-functional ormatrix).– Provide an action plan of required skills you need to learn for your future which came up duringthis game. What steps do you need to take, and where would you be able to gain them? Be specific,how will you achieve these skills?Ensure to use 10+ academic sources to tie into your experiences and examples within yourreflection.Marking Criteria Marksallocatedtocriteria:CompletenessThe presence of all the elements required by the task, include attaching thepresentation slides in the end of document20AnalysisDoes the report analyse your team’s own performance against the key measuresused to evaluate the performance in the simulation game?30SoundnessDoes the reflection report indicate a comprehensive understanding of thesimulation process and the key indicators with your own assessment of teamperformance?

Where material has been used from other sources, this must be properlyacknowledged in accordance with the University’s Regulations regarding AcademicMisconduct.Marking, feedback and next stepsTo pass this module, students must achieve an overall mark of 50+ and a mark of 50+ for allassessments. 16 | P a g e For coursework, the marks and feedback will normally be provided to students within fifteenworking days of the submission deadline. In exceptional circumstances, where there is a delay inproviding feedback, you will be informed by the module leader.If you do not pass a module at the first attempt, you may be eligible for a resit opportunity on thefailed assessments. This will be confirmed after the Progression and Award Board (PAB). Note thatmarks on resit assessments are capped at 50% unless extenuation has been applied for and granted.For further details on resit assessments, please see section 7 below.The assessment and feedback policy can be accessed at Assessment and Feedback Policy Extenuating circumstances and student supportThe University recognises there are times when serious and unexpected matters which are beyonda student’s control (such as serious illness or injury, death in family) impact on their academicperformance and ability to complete assessments by the deadline. Guidance on claimingextenuation can be found at: Extenuating circumstancesExternal ExaminerThe External Examiner for this module is:Name: Dr. Andrew WildInstitution: University of NottinghamPlease note that the role of the External Examiner is to evaluate the overall standard of assessmentson the module. They are unable to correspond with individual students about their work. If youneed to discuss your marks or feedback, please contact the module leader.NB: There will be a new topic listed on Moodle for the resit essay assignment. The previous topicsfrom the guidebook are therefore invalid and all resitting students will be required to write on acompletely different topic. As for the game report, all resitting students should contact the moduleleader in advance to seek further support, if the student has not managed to join the game, due tounforeseen issues.
