Prerequisites
Students admitted to the program are ones that would have already conducted at least 30 Cr of management education.

Description
This course focuses on current and critical issues in global management by examining the techniques and practices underpinning organizations across the globe. Through the lens of various functions of the organization and global management practices, decision-making processes will be unpacked including the impact these have on individuals, institutions and countries. This course will begin with reflective individual based assessments identifying individual traits, behavior and assumptions which will form the basis in understanding key ethical, social, cultural and cognitive factors affecting management practice and global organizations. Through a flipped classroom approach, students will be a central part to experiential and active learning, examining and reflecting on a range of management assumptions, communication and negotiation patterns and leadership styles that are integral to global management practice. This learning will be embedded and reinforced through the application of management concepts to ambiguous and complex business scenarios from international environments, preparing students for future international careers. As global citizens, students will explore and analyze key management theory and empirical evidence, and apply this to case studies and business scenarios, role play, group projects, individual assignments and reflections. By the end of this course, through a range of teaching and learning methods, students will develop a global managerial mindset through informed dialogue, educated and justified choices and decision making, negotiated teamwork and leadership skills that goes beyond traditional thinking.
