Global Business and Corporate Governance

Book Description

This book presents a new era where the main force for social change, research, education, economic betterment, and even employee happiness is the global enterprise. So many businesses today are “global,” though often with conflicting priorities and potential civilization clashes. Companies may operate in a practically borderless world, seeking ideas and talents globally, but without proper knowledge and preparation, it is one endless struggle. Inside, you’ll learn many global business-related issues ranging from historical matters to the realities of the 21st century—from local cultures to global organizations and from political, legal, and economic topics to accounting, finance, marketing, and management perspectives. This book directs your attention to critical business challenges in addition to the need of corporate governance at all levels. These issues include how it all relates to the environment and the structure of the corporation. Whether you’re already out in the CEO world, or a student in upper-level undergraduate or graduate study, or executive education, this book gives you numerous combinations of how-to-do projects with philosophical perspectives of a new and challenging era.
