Cases In The Environment Of Business is a comprehensive collection of business case studies. The book is intended to supplement a professional course in managerial studies at a Post Graduate level such as that in an MBA. The book covers several notable cases from the professional world and shows students how the concepts they learn in class are put to the test in the real world. The book discusses cases which deal with a variety of environmental forces, but it proves that often a singular force can sway the outcome. It helps students understand how managerial outcomes and decisions influence things on an international level. The book is an essential resource for all MBA students. About David W. Conklin David W.
