Why study Global Business Management?

Successful multinationals, especially related to hospitality or customer service, such as large hotel chains but also luxury retail, consumer banking, insurance…operate in different countries, across different time zones and they need leaders who can adapt to, and understand, those different and changing economic, political and cultural environments.
