The course also helps students evaluate Indian democracy’s successes and failures in fulfilling its commitment to secularism and social justice and how they are linked to the attainment of India’s growth goals.

Philosophy & Business

How should human beings live? That is one of the most basic questions in philosophy. In other words, what is that greatest good which we can collectively aim for? Should we all seek for equality or happiness? Or is that there are such irreconcilable differences between one being and another such that peaceful coexistence is not possible at all and any social order can only be imposed through authority? In the course, students will have an opportunity to look at the different theories that have tried to define the greatest collective good for society. All these ethical and political philosophies are built upon underlying notions of what humanity is and what selfhood is. Of all the relations that exist between things within the world, the most interesting relation philosophically is the relation between human beings.

With increasing globalization of the world economy, understanding the fundamentals of internationalization is important for professionals across business, government and NGO sectors. The international business (IB) phenomena, characterized by growing trade, investment, information exchange, and movement of people across borders, is an integral part of our daily lives today. This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the conduct of international business, covering both micro-, firm-level aspects of IB management, and macro-, national and international dimensions of IB. Some of the core questions that we will address in this course are: Why do firms internationalize? Why are multinational firms (MNCs) formed? What are the key characteristics of the strategies and organization structures used by multinational firms in the course of their global expansion? How internationalization affects functional strategies such as marketing, production, R&D and HRM? How do exchange rates affect IB strategy, and what can firms do to face these challenges? At the macro level, we will look at the benefits of international trade, and the costs and benefits of foreign direct investment for the home and host countries. We will also explore the question of culture, and its usefulness or otherwise for IB management.
