International Business Strategy Summary International Business Strategy by Alain Verbeke University of Calgary Verbeke provides a new perspective on international business strategy by combining analytical rigour and true managerial insight on the functioning of large multinational enterprises MNEs.
With unique commentary on 48 seminal articles published in the Harvard Business Review, the Sloan Management Review and the California Management Review over the past three decades, Verbeke shows how these can be applied to real businesses engaged in international expansion programmes, especially as they venture into high-distance markets.
The second edition has been thoroughly updated and features greater coverage of emerging markets with a new chapter and seven new cases. First, it incorporates the latest theoretical insights and helps students to understand the complexities of international business in the real world. Second, it is truly integrative, presenting a framework in the first half of the book that is consistently used in all subsequent chapters and applications.
Having long searched in vain for such a three-dimensional textbook, I believe it is one of a kind. Alain Verbeke has pulled off one of the hardest feats in management education. By taking this reflective and integrative approach, Verbeke offers an unprecedented learning experience to both students and practitioners by greatly enhancing their understanding of successful international strategy formulation and implementation.
This highly readable text supported by excellent cases should appeal to students whose managerial careers will span an increasingly global economy. International strategy faculty will find that the text easily lends itself to customizing the course to their particular needs.
