    The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization. Our mission is one shared by many in international education: 'to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.' To fulfill that mission, CIEE provides both outbound international education experiences for university students, faculty, and administrators, and study, work, and internship opportunities for people coming into the U.S.

    CIEE has had a presence in the Netherlands since 1993 with a Social Sciences program in cooperation with the College of Social Sciences at the University of Amsterdam and since 2012 in Business and Culture with the Faculty Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam. Apart from these semester programs CIEE offers January term, summer and customized programs.

    International Management

    This course examines a multinational corporation and the ways it formulates, implements, evaluates, and conducts its international and global business in the most cost-effective and efficient way. As an organic entity, an organization must effectively coordinate all business units (human resources, finance, accounting, sales and marketing, R&D, logistics, corporate social responsibility, just to name a few) across national boundaries, extending them to places where the environment can be challenging and, at times, even hostile. Based on strong intercultural communication skills between all national and international units, management practices among the external and internal environments will constantly interact and determine the success or failure of a company in the international arena. This course will equip students with the necessary tools and concepts to analyze and understand the formulation, implementation and evaluation of a company.

    By completing this course, students will
    • Develop a customized toolkit of concepts to analyze and understand the formulation, implementation and evaluation of a company on a domestic and international level.
    • Manage the process internally and externally of how formal and informal institutions impact and interact with a multinational corporation.
    • Apply different theories used by management (resource-based views; stakeholder and institutional theories; knowledge-based theory of the firm) and put academic theory into practical fieldwork for decisions on the right strategic orientation for the MNC.
    • Deconstruct, rebuild, and put into best practice the strategic (internal and external) forces in global and national environments.
    • Understand the ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) involved in the development and behavior of a MNC.
    • Explain why there is expansion across borders; where the company should target its efforts; when and what the company’s international strategy propulsion should be; and who is responsible for performance assessment.

    This is a CIEE administered class.

    • Teach the International Management class (i.e. design and deliver two-hour classes, for a total of 45 contact hours, across 16 weeks of teaching).
