About this Publication:

When people think about the business world, they tend to think more about the political economy of operating environments than the intricacies of ethics and diversity management in offshore locations. However, all these factors are equally pertinent to successful global business management and a successful international business.
Globalisation and technological innovation also need to be considered. And while the controversy that surrounds globalisation has tainted the proceeds of growth and economic prosperity, the improvement in quality of life brought about by technological advances in global financial integration cannot be overemphasised.

Contents Include:

Chapter 1: Globalisation and global business dynamics
Chapter 2: Institutional frameworks and the role of government
Chapter 3: Culture and international business
Chapter 4: Ethics and corporate governance in international business
Chapter 5: The global technological, innovation and information Environment
Chapter 6: The global monetary system and foreign exchange market
Chapter 7: Evolution of global markets and African imperatives
Chapter 8: Financial management and strategies in the global context
Chapter 9: Cross-border investment and trade
Chapter 10: Foreign direct investment and the institutional framework
Chapter 11: Regional economic integration, trade blocs and free trade areas
