Course Description: This course analyses the emergence of firms which operate on a global scale and their current and likely future interactions with emerging markets. It combines the development of conceptual frameworks primarily through the lectures with the analysis of key cases in the classes. The "new institutional economics" has recently developed as a field to understand the impact of variation in institutions on economies' performance. This course focuses on how the institutional characteristics of emerging markets affect the choices and behavior of multinational firms, now and into the future. The course explores the basic framework of analysis of the behavior of multinational enterprises (MNEs), outlining models of the MNE which draw on transaction cost economics, the eclectic OLI paradigm of Dunning, and more recent concepts such as the resource based view. It analyses economic performance and growth in emerging markets building on the new institutional economies and working with a large variety of data sets and sources. The course then examines the interaction between international trade and investment in the internationalization choices of MNEs; the emergence of global supply chains; the determinants of FDI; the effects of FDI on the host economy; entry mode choices; measures of institutional and cultural distance; and the growing importance of multinationals from emerging markets.
