Course specific prerequisites

Course TEK260 or IMA044 or equivalent


 

Aim

The course aims at providing students with an understanding of business relationships and their nature, as well as what they permit and preclude. The course takes an international perspective on business relationships and focuses on customer as well as supplier relationships.


 

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Describe and analyse central features of business relationships with a focus on international aspects

  • Describe and analyse business relationships as parts of global networks

  • Formulate and evaluate global marketing and supply strategies

  • Illustrate the challenges faced by firms when involved in international business relatiohsips

  •  

    Content

    The course focuses on international business relationships from different perspectives. The focus will be on a dyadic level (i.e. the relationship between two companies) but their situation in the network and how they are affected by the other business enterprises therein will also be a strong focus in the course. The course helps students to recognize that planning, whether on the marketing or on the purchasing side of any business, is not a straightforward process that can be undertaken without consideration of what important counterparts are doing.

    Organisation

    The course is based on a combination of lectures, group work, seminars, and individual work. There will be a strong discursive element to each class and students are expected to participate actively.

    Literature

    To be announced later

    Examination

    Written exam and assignment.
