The aim of this module is to provide an in-depth understanding of the evolution of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and the Multinational Corporation (MNC) as a key global investment player. This is important in an ever-growing complex international investment scene and the module pays particular attention to the way the modern MNC organises its activities, including the role of headquarters and subsidiaries, and how this determines their relations with other firms in forms of strategic alliances, joint ventures, mergers and acquisitions.
