International Business: The Opportunities and Challenges of a Flat World
Mason Carpenter and Sanjyot Dunung
In writing International Business, Mason Carpenter and Sanjyot Dunung’s goals were clear and simple:
- To help students understand how to build, lead, and thrive in global organizations in an increasingly flat world
- To define a “flat world” as a global society where service industries dwarf manufacturing industries in terms of scale and scope, the Internet pervades in all aspects of life and work, and networks define modern businesses
- To encourage students to see national borders as bridges, not barriers
- To provide students with progressive and comprehensive coverage of the principles of international business.
