About the subject:

International Business module is designed for executives whose decisions will impact the strategy of their company in international operations. Topics have been selected for their likely interest to managers in Asia, such as how firms expand into foreign markets, offshoring and outsourcing, joint ventures and alliances with foreign firms, valuation of intellectual property and intangible assets, the impact of foreign exchange risk on company strategy, managing across cultures, and global integration. Many of the principles of global management are, of course, the same regardless of the location of corporate headquarters. The perspective is from the middle to senior management level.

"The professors at Rutgers are great. Through their enthusiasm to impart their lifetime of research and teachings, the students benefitted greatly and the lessons are always over too soon and packed with so much useful information. The application is almost immediate. The capstone Business Strategy class taught by Prof Karafin helped me the next week when I had to attend a Leadership Summit in the US and had to present a business strategy to the CEO and the Operating Committee."
