  • Global Environment of Business

This course is focused primarily on what happens outside the boundaries of the firm – in the global environment of business. Although firms will be integral to our cases and discussions, in the GEOB course they play a role primarily as actors who must respond to the risks and opportunities presented by external forces such as the business cycle, exchange rates, government regulation and other forms of political intervention. In some of our cases firms also are shapers of these environments, for example through negotiations with government officials or by helping to craft the rules that govern international trade agreements. As such, GEOB is a “big picture” course– a course that has a fundamental purpose of fulfilling Ivey’s mission of graduating students with a global perspective.
