Skrócony opis:

The main aim of the course is to develop a better understanding of the nature and role of transnational firms and of the effects of their operations. Typical attributes of such firms are examined as well as their organizational, geographical and sectoral profiles. The course then moves to the principal theories of transnational firms, issues of ownership and control and to the complex interface between their interests and those of the countries where they operate.
