About Lesson

Globalization means integrating economies and societies through cross-country flows of information, ideas, technologies, goods, services, capital, finance, and people. Cross-border integration can have several dimensions-cultural, social, political, and economical.

Globalization, to put it another way, is the free flow of information, technology, and goods between countries and customers. Business, geopolitics, and technology, as well as travel, culture, and the media, all contribute to this openness.

Most individuals don’t observe globalization at work since the world is already so interconnected. However, the world is shrinking, and businesses must grasp what this means for their future operations. Companies that refuse to embrace globalization risk losing a competitive advantage.

Ways of engaging in International Businesses

  • Franchising: This occurs when a parent company grants another firm the permission to conduct business under the its name, brand, and products. The franchisor is the parent firm, the franchisee is the receiving company.
  • Offshoring and international business outsourcing: Outsourcing is the process of contracting some company processes to multinational companies. Effective when the cost of carrying out  processes in another country is significantly lower than in the home country.
