Course Description

This course focuses on the social, political, economic and institutional environment of countries. This environmental context molds the country’s objectives, defines the country’s strategy, programs and policies for achieving objectives, and significantly impacts companies.

The context is affected by historical events, and by the country’s leadership. Many stakeholders shape the environment and the institutions, or “rules of the game”, that affect business. Labor, students, farmers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the military play a crucial role, making the analysis of country environments complex and fascinating.

We will study Japan in some depth, and catch brief glimpses of South Korea, Singapore, Chile, Turkey, India, South Africa and the former Soviet Union, to appreciate the forces that influence diverse country environments, and companies’ strategies.

The course will review aspects of global institutions, su...

We will study Japan in some depth, and catch brief glimpses of South Korea, Singapore, Chile, Turkey, India, South Africa and the former Soviet Union, to appreciate the forces that influence diverse country environments, and companies’ strategies.

The course will review aspects of global institutions, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO), which set global rules that profoundly affect business strategy and human welfare. It will also explore opportunities and challenges at the bottom of the pyramid, the last frontier for value creation by companies and NGOs.

Took the course-completed exams-did well. However, there were computer glitches and the software did not properly register-excellent test results and computer class completion. The tech staff did not grasp the meaning of this when tried to resolve it.Results were lost in cyber space. Progress weas actually completed-status should have registered successful completion. However, no such luck. Have to audit and retake it again. Photos of progress done apparently were not considered.

Thank You Prof. Vachani sir for this wonderful course. This course combines historic data with deep analysis that lays foundation of learning for future. Through real events that happened in Japan, South Korea, Soviet Union, Singapore, Turkey, Chile, India and South Africa we can truly see how cultural, historical, social & institutional factors can determine extra-ordinary growth & same factors can turn out to be real challenges to deal with. Content & pace of lectures was perfect for me. I now sees things in India & the world very differently & now know enough factors that are important for today & future. I wish for more such courses from IIMB. Thank You Professor Vachani sir & course coordinators & whole team of The Course.

Virtual courses involves more work than classroom courses ... they are nonetheless an excellent way to access training processes that are not in your environment or to other ways of understanding the issues and training processes.

This was my first EdX course and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The instructor, Dr. Vachani, made the content delivery process very easy for students, and I could comprehend all the information beamed at me. The interactive graphs and statistics, coupled with interviews of eminent personalities, made the course all the more interesting, bringing together views from various fields. The idea of looking at various countries to best understand the course was the most unique aspect of this course! Thanks to the IIMB team for conceptualising and delivering this course! Looking forward to more from them! :)

Very Interesting topic that I chose to start off my first experience with MOOC. The content was rich with latest insightful data and made sense for 2016. I learnt lot more about this topic in few weeks than I had learnt in a year of informal learning. I thank Dr. Sushil Vachani and the IIMBX team for creating this knowledgeable content and shout-out to the edX team for answering all my queries quickly. Happy to know there is so much innovation happening in the education sector and edX is able to make Learning more Affordable, Adaptable and Accessible! Glad to be part of this exciting time!

The course is short but very insightful. It's an 'eye opener' in designing global strategy with particular focus on institutional and structural constraints that one need to watch out for. It also highlighted the necessary strategies to overcome the constraints. Great course, great Professor!

The instructor, Dr. Vachani, did a great job at explaining the material; he was easy to understand and if he wasn't, the platform gives students the abilty to download a trascript of the video lectures to review. I enjoyed this course very much and I recommend that anyone who has interest in international economics and affairs to register. Happy learning to all!!!
