Course title: global financial mangement
The forces of globalization have had an immense impact on multinational firms. On the one hand, it has opened up new markets for these companies to explore, allowing them to increase their profits through access to cheaper labor and resources or by capitalizing on new demand for goods and services from previously untouched regions. Furthermore, global trade agreements have also allowed multinationals to reduce tariffs associated with import/export activities making it easier for them to expand into foreign markets.
On the other hand, globalization can also bring about challenges for multinational firms such as having to be more agile in order to stay competitive given that products are often created quickly and may become obsolete just as fast. Additionally, with increased competition from other multinationals striving for market share in newly accessible markets there may be price wars which erode margins or intense pressure from governments when it comes to taxes or environmental compliance regulations etc. Despite these potential difficulties however if managed correctly a firm’s ability to leverage its expertise across multiple borders can lead toward greater success than ever before possible
