Summary

McFarlin/Sweeney provides students with an accessible, application-oriented approach to international management, focusing on key challenges including on how to motivate, lead, and communicate with people across different countries and cultures. The book gives students a global perspective on the process of hiring, training, and developing employees, as well as strategic decision making in relation to foreign markets.

Questions, case studies, examples of creative problem solving and testimonials from real-world managers operating in the international arena are just a few of the tactics McFarlin and Sweeney use to help students begin to think about applied theory on a global level. All chapters have been updated with the latest articles from leading business sources and academic journals, and new case studies have been incorporated.

  • New! The latest articles from The Wall Street Journal, The Economist and The Financial Times, and updated references to academic journals, including The Journal of International Business Studies, Academy of Management Journal, and Strategic Management Journal are included in each chapter.
  • New! Tapping into the Global Network features at end of each chapter provide substantive assignments with a strong web component.
  • New! Updated cases accompany each of the chapters in parts I-IV. These cases can be used to highlight issues from particular chapters or to provide a capstone experience that integrates material across chapters.
  • International Insights features found in each chapter report on cutting-edge and creative approaches taken by companies or people grappling with unusual international management issues in particular countries.
  • International Challenges open each chapter with a real problem facing an international manager or company. These problems are directly connected to the content of each chapter.
  • Boxed features in each chapter provide interviews with real-world managers operating in the international arena. This feature can be found on the student web site and is covered in the IRM.
  • A full-color insert with maps and data from the World Bank Atlas helps to give students a broad snapshot of the world of business.
