For courses in international business.

This package includes MyLab Management.

 

International business through theory and practice

Balancing authoritative theory and meaningful practice, International Business engages students on the subject of conducting business in international markets. The authors’ descriptions and ideas of international business are enhanced with contemporary examples, scenarios, and cases that help students effectively apply what they’ve learned. Now in its 16th Edition, International Business remains one of the best-selling and most authoritative international business texts available. As rigorous and practical as ever, this edition remains current through updated author-­written cases, including seven entirely new cases, streamlined writing, and expanded coverage of relevant global changes.

 

This package includes Pearson MyLabTM Management, an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

 

Pearson MyLab Management should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Please be sure you have the correct ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson rep for more information.

Features

  • Cases and features bring concepts to life
  • Author­-written cases begin and end every chapter, either introducing new material or integrating what has already been learned. These cases set the standard for integrating theory with practice on three levels.
  • Looking to the Future features in each chapter offer scenarios that are important to managers, companies, or the world. The topic of each feature alludes to ideas discussed in the chapter in a way that prompts students to engage their imagination about the future of the world.
  • Point-­Counterpoint features bring the topics of major debates to life in a way students can understand and investigate, highlighting the diversity of perspectives that managers and policy­makers use to make sense of vital issues. The give­-and-­take between the two sides of the debate link theory and practice in a way that helps spark classroom discussion.
  • Maps enhance geographic literacy, add interest, and illustrate facts discussed in the text. Many case maps zero in on the case company’s home country or market region to give students a close-­up look at foreign locales. A complete atlas can be found in Chapter 1.
  • Does Geography Matter? sections appear within appropriate chapters.
  • NEW! Marginal notes are now used to summarise discussions, while marginal chapter review notes lead students back to earlier material that helps them fathom later discussions.
  • UPDATED! Recent global changes and developments are referenced in the text.
  • UPDATED! The text’s overall length has been reduced by more than 200 pages without sacrificing content, coverage, or quality; as a result, the text is now more engaging, interesting, and readable than ever.
  • UPDATED! and NEW! All cases from the previous edition have been extensively updated and 7 new ones have been added:
