International Entrepreneurship (721N1)
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 7 (Masters)
The focus of this course is on the development and growth of new firms from establishment to the early stages of international development. Much of the core teaching in international business relates to the strategic decisions made by established large firms, but SMEs are increasingly engaged in both foreign trade and investment - as is evidenced by the phenomena of born-global firms, international new ventures, and rapidly internationalising firms. In this context, the links between entrepreneurship, innovation, and internationalisation are crucial.
By the end of the course, a successful student should be able to
1 Understand theories of entrepreneurship and internationalisation
2 Appreciate the processes of entrepreneurship, innovation and internationalisation in small firms
3 Evaluate the merits of alternative foreign market entry strategies for new firms
