International business management is the study of international firms; their strategy, corporate policies and operations. It includes the study of the international business environment in so far as the environment affects firms. Consequently, modes of entry, coordinating structures and firm internationalisation are studied along with the economic, political, legal and cultural environment of international business. Almost all firms compete in international markets or compete against international competitors. Accordingly, this specialisation prepares graduates for leadership roles in contemporary businesses.
