Understanding Global Strategy is the eagerly anticipated new textbook from Susan Segal-Horn and David Faulkner for international strategy courses at all levels. Exploring strategic decision-making on a global scale from multinational corporations through to small enterprises, Segal-Horn and Faulkner cover globalization, networking, culture barriers and benefits, ethics and emerging economies to provide the complete introduction for today’s global strategy courses.

Key learning features include:
Premium Case Studies – a selection of in-depth international case studies from premium case study authors provide practical illustrations of key issues in real-life situations
Strategies in Action – a wealth of shorter case studies to reinforce principles outlined in each chapter
Discussion Questions – are provided at the end of each chapter to test knowledge and understanding, and provide a basis for group discussions and activities

This textbook is essential reading for all international or global strategy modules on advance undergraduate or postgraduate (particularly MBA) programmes, in addition to broader strategic management and professional courses.

Features

Written by key names in the field, both authors are very well-known researchers, experienced writers, and active teachers.
Strong focus on strategic management combined with the inclusion of the necessary international economic concepts.
Crucial contemporary chapters on: emerging markets including SMEs; global mergers and acquisitions; the ’’new’’ economy, technology, externalities/the Internet; corporate social responsibility; networks and virtual corporations; and HQ Subsidiary relationships/parenting.
Includes mini-cases as succinct illustrations of theory in practice, with one or two questions to address the ’’so what?’’ factor.
Also contains one long case per chapter that is a very close fit for the issues in each chapter; again, these cases will be accompanied by closing questions that help the students assess their understanding of the key issues.
Excellent pedagogical devices include Learning Objectives, Glossary Terms, Discussion Questions/Assignments, Bulleted Summaries, Annotated Further Readings, and Weblinks to broaden and expand the teaching and learning experience.
Companion websites include: PPTs, case analysis, short tutor notes for teaching each chapter, additional questions, and for students: internet exercises, weblinks and additional questions.

{Supplements}
“An admirably incisive overview of global strategy by a pair of most experienced authors. It robustly covers a very wide range of cross-national business contexts. It will be of great use to both undergraduate and postgraduate users, particularly aspirant MBAs’” Malcolm Warner, Professor and Fellow Emeritus, Wolfson College and Judge Business School, University of Cambridge


“This is an important and admirable new text on global strategy with several quite distinctive strengths. It provides a comprehensive treatment of different contexts and sectors. It also addresses newly significant issues such as ethics, SME globalization and base-of-the pyramid strategy. Not least, it contains very relevant case studies.” John Child, Professor of Commerce, Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham


“I am very impressed with the thoroughness of their approach and, as a book on global strategy, it is a welcome antidote to a field that it is dominated by so many superficial texts.” Paul Gooderham, Professor in International Management at NHH – The Norwegian School of Economics & Business Administration


"Susan Segal-Horn and David Faulkner offer a guide to global strategy this is both comprehensive and, as result of their effective marshalling and clear articulation of the principles, highly accessible. Their rich, real-world examples make this textbook a pleasure to read." - Robert M. Grant, Eni Professor of Strategic Management, Bocconi University, Milan, Italy
