Course Brief

Through the explicit use of comparative techniques, this course explores the origins of national economic success and failure. It looks, therefore, at the competitiveness and organisational capabilities of each comparator country’s companies and asks which national factors encourage commercial success. Particular attention is paid to the G7 countries and East Asia. The meaning and impact of economic growth and the global economy are key themes, as are the influence of governments and national cultures on business performance studies.
