Global Shocks: How to Manage Change in the Global Business Environment

Discover how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed global business

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the many ways that global business intersects our lives and, in many ways, seems to have ‘rewritten’ the rules of global business entirely.

This course from the Auckland University of Technology (AUT) will help you understand and adapt to changes in the global business environment.

Even before the pandemic, recent technological, environmental, political, and economic disruptions have reinforced the importance of understanding how business plays a part in the challenges and solutions being faced globally.

On this course, you’ll analyse the current state of global business and how wider global issues, such as environmental degradation, affect global value chains. You’ll then move on to cover political and economic change, and the implications these have on global business.

Explore how technology will affect global work after COVID-19

With technology constantly evolving and changing the way we work, it’s crucial for business leaders to understand how technological developments impact the future of global business.

You’ll delve into global work and how you can anticipate and adapt to these technological changes before widening your view and assessing how these changes in the global business environment are experienced differently across regions.

Learn from the experts at the Auckland University of Technology

Throughout this course, you’ll be guided by the experts at the AUT Faculty of Business, Economics, and Law who specialise in understanding the changing nature of the global business environment.

With a focus on encouraging deep learning and engagement, this course will help you expand your skills and knowledge of the changing global business environment.
