The OECD defines global competence as “the capacity to examine local, global and intercultural issues, to understand and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others”.

This module provides an opportunity to practice key parts of the business planning process, and business plan production - with a particular emphasis on HRM and in an ethical agenda.
