Updated coverage of key trends that impact how international business functions, including the drivers of globalization, e-commerce and the impact of the Internet, and international entrepreneurship
New material on technology issues, the impact of the financial crisis, and problems in the EU
Expanded discussion of the skills and strategies students need to succeed in today's international business environment, including dynamic capabilities, foreign direct investment, and market entry strategies
Also featuring a companion website with a test bank, Powerpoint slides, and instructor's manual, this book is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students and instructors of any international business course.
