STUDENTS: Course details change from semester to semester. Please check that you are reading the Course Outline for the correct semester.
Course description This course is a broad survey of the field of international business and provides the foundations for further specialisation in this field. It begins with a brief overview of international business, focused on the concept of globalisation. The course will then examine the environment for international firms, particularly the political, social, economic, technological and other configurations that support cross-border trade and investment. Amongst others, we will look at the role of national policies, cultures and business systems, the evolution of international markets in goods, services and finance, and the supernational mechanisms and infrastructures for trade, investment and finance. The course will then probe international firms: their strategies and organisational design, their entry modes into international enterprise, and their behavioural and control systems. Discussion of current events/affairs and how these impact on international businesses is a major part of the course, for instance issues relating to international trade, foreign investment, international political conflict, financial crises, etc.

research international business issues and apply theoretical insights to the analysis of such issues in the context of a complex international business environment;
communicate their understanding in a clear and concise way through exams,
presentations, assignments, and tutorial participation.
Details about assessment are below. Please notice that ALL assessment items are compulsory and must be submitted in order to pass this course.
Assessment item Tutorial participation
Description and detail of the assignment
Tutorial participation will be rewarded by answering the endof-chapter Critical Thinking and Discussion Questions proposed for each week. Students must only attend the tutorial groups they are enrolled in – please see Tutorial registration above. Students who attend a tutorial group other than the one they are enrolled in will be asked to leave, and will not qualify for tutorial participation marks.
Case study presentation
At the beginning of each tutorial a group of 2-3 students will be required to present a short case study. In the first tutorial (week 2, starting 26 July) groups are formed. Students presenting a particular case will read the relevant chapter in order to prepare their presentation, bearing in mind that additional research is to be conducted to attain high marks in the presentation.
You are expected to submit one assignment that reflects the international business environment in which a company
Monday 6 September at 4pm
operates. You will select one company from the list of Australian companies provided uploaded on Wattle under Individual Assignment. You must select one company and research in which countries the company of choice has engaged in FDI (Foreign Direct Investment; please notice that to select a country to which the company only exports is not enough). Select a country and then proceed to analysing the business environment in that country.
The final exam covers all the material discussed during the lectures and tutorials, all chapters in the textbook covered during lectures plus additional readings. The format of the exam will be discussed in the last lecture (Friday 29 October).
Students are advised of the examination date/time on the course website, in lectures and on the noticeboard outside the MMIB School Office.
Tutorial participation: Students will receive marks for their answers at the discretion of
their tutor. These marks will be summed up at the end of the semester – the maximum mark for this assessment item is 10% - and released to students as part of the Interim Results (which will be published before the Final exam). Hence the importance of coming to tutorials well prepared.
Case study presentation: Once you have been allocated a case study do not wait until
the last minute to start preparing your presentation. The aim of the case study presentation is for students to answer the accompanying case discussion questions in the most thorough way. The group case study presentation should last no longer than 15 minutes and should make use of transparencies in order to facilitate audience interest and understanding. Please note that PowerPoint (PPT) presentations are not allowed, and students who prepare
PPT presentations will not be allowed to present, receiving NIL marks for this component of the course and thus failing the course. The presentation will be followed by 10 minutes of Q&A/Discussion. As a suggestion, no more than 10 transparencies should be presented, and these should not contain all the data you want to present, that is you should not read from your transparencies. Transparencies should be used as prompts only, and the way you design and present your transparencies will count towards your mark for this assessment item. Please note that the list of case studies will be circulated in the first tutorial – week 2, starting 26 July – when students will form into groups by placing their names against a case study. It is the responsibility of each student to join a group, thus if you join the tutorial group after the first tutorial you must approach your tutor to have your name added to a group. Tutors will not chase after students, and students who fail to join a group early in the semester will fail this assessment item and consequently the course.
Individual assignment: The assignment takes the form of a report to the CEO at the
headquarters of the company. Your assignment should contain a maximum of 2,500 words ±10%. • • • You should bear in mind the following: the CEO knows the company and its products or services well and thus does not need specific information on those; the CEO needs to be informed about the possible risks/opportunities to the company caused by peculiarities of the business environment in the foreign country; the CEO does not have time to read the piles of paper you are able to copy for him from the internet. He only has time for a focused but informative and analytically sharp report; • attention should be paid to any aspect of the business environment relevant to the firm and its products/services, such as political environment, government regulation, commercial law, IP, level and rate of economic development, demographics, position in international trade and investment, environmental law, regional cooperation, etc.; • the main purpose of the assignment is to analyse the business environment in a country for the Australian company of your choice. Do not copy general information about the country from the internet (for instance info found on CIA’s The World Factbook), but limit yourself to a sharp analysis of what is relevant to the CEO. Please bear in mind that you are required to conduct research that goes well beyond the data/info contained in the textbook for this course. You should also bear in mind that the extensiveness of the research conducted – reflected in both the content of the report and in the bibliography utilised - as well as the structure of the report are particularly relevant.

• • • •
NOTE: You must contact the College Office for guidance on the procedure for special examinations. Do not approach your lecturer for this information. Students who are unable to attend an examination for reasons outlined in the policies above, may apply to sit a special examination by lodging an application with the College Student Administration Office no later than 72 hours after the scheduled examination. It is important to emphasise that travel arrangements and minor illnesses are not normally acceptable grounds for special examinations (Section 2, College ‘Special Examination Policy’: http://ecocomm.anu.edu.au/student/policy/specexam.asp). Please note: the ‘Student Enrolment and Procedures Guide 2010’ states:
Students must make themselves available for the duration of the examination period in order to attend any special examination that may be required.
If you know in advance of circumstances whereby you will be unable to sit the examination, you should lodge an application for consideration as soon as possible.
The dates on which Special Examinations will be held will be published on the School website when the final timetable is published. Applications for special examinations must be correctly completed with all original supporting documentation attached. Where an application is made on the grounds of sickness, Section B of the application must be completed by a medical practitioner and a detailed medical certificate stating the effect on your capacity to sit the examination is required. Please Note: The medical certificate must carry the stamp from the medical practice, and will not always be sufficient evidence. Special examinations are not automatically granted. Once approved, successful candidates are required to contact the relevant School General Office to obtain details of the special exam. If you do not sit the examination, or your application for a special examination is declined, then you will fail the course as incomplete. It is not grounds for a further special examination if students are not contactable and miss the scheduled examination date. Special Consideration If illness or other disruptive events have affected your preparation for, or performance during an examination, you can bring this to the attention of the examiners by making a request for special consideration using the Application for Special Consideration form. Requests for special consideration must be lodged with the relevant School General Office before the scheduled date of the examination. However, if it relates to a problem that arose during the examination, it should be submitted immediately after the examination (see the invigilator). Requests for special consideration must be accompanied by documentation of the illness and/or a letter setting out the reasons for the difficulties in studying for or sitting an examination. The examiners will take this into account in awarding the final grade. Special Arrangements If you have a disability or disorder (permanent or temporary) which makes undertaking a formal sit-down examination difficult, then you are responsible for requesting special arrangements to be made for your examination. In the past these arrangements have included the use of special equipment, additional time, writing breaks, a scribe (someone to write for you), etc. Please contact the Examination Office early in the semester and at least 10 days prior to the examination period. Failure to make appropriate arrangements for an examination may result in a subsequent application for a special examination/consideration being declined. Disabilities If you have any queries about special arrangements with respect to disabilities, please
refer to the Disabilities Officer. The ANU Disability Services Centre’s website is http://www.anu.edu.au/disabilities/. Supplementary Examinations Under University policy Examinations Rules 2007, http://www.anu.edu.au/cabs/rules/ExamsRules.pdf you may be provided with a supplementary exam. If you have qualified for a supplementary examination, your grade will be recorded as a PX on your Notification of Results. You must notify the School Office, in writing (email is satisfactory), within 7 days of the official publication date of examination results to indicate your acceptance or otherwise to sit the supplementary examination. If you pass the supplementary examination you will receive the grade of PS (pass supplemental) and a mark of 50. If you are unsuccessful, or you decide not to sit the supplementary examination, your grade will be recorded as N (fail) and your original mark will stand. Supplementary examinations will be held early in the next semester on dates to be advised. For information regarding the timing and venues for Supplementary examinations please refer to the school websites in week 2 of the current semester: ABIS: http://www.cbe.anu.edu.au/schools/abis/ ECONOMICS: http://www.cbe.anu.edu.au/schools/eco/ FAS: http://www.cbe.anu.edu.au/schools/fas/ MMIB: http://www.cbe.anu.edu.au/schools/mmib/ Travel plans should be made accordingly as failure to do so is not an acceptable reason to miss a supplementary examination. Results and Examinations ANU Grading Codes - in accordance with the University Assessment Grades/Codes, the CBE applies the following scale when awarding grades: Final Pass Grades HD - High Distinction D – Distinction CR – Credit P – Pass PS – Pass at supplementary examination Final Fail Grades N – Fail NCN – Not Completed/Fail WN – Withdrawn with failure
80 –100 70 – 79 60 - 69 50 – 59 50
00 – 49
Interim Codes (used when a result for a course has not yet been finalised)
DA – Deferred assessment PX – Awarded supplementary assessment RP – Result pending WA – Withheld for administrative reasons Scaling Scaling can increase or decrease a mark but does not change the order of marks relative to the other students in the course. If it is decided that scaling is appropriate, then the final mark awarded in a course may differ from the aggregation of the raw marks of each assessment component.
