Corporate Geographies

This module takes the firm as its core focus and examines the spatial organisation of the firm and its multidimensional activities. In the new millennium, the firm has become the fundamental nexus of work, production, innovation and social relations in our economic life. This module thus emphasizes the role of space and place in shaping the social organisation and transformations of firms and the impact of such transformations on the wider processes of territorial development at different geographical scales. In particular, we discuss several contemporary economic geography perspectives on the firm, e.g. networks and innovations, place-based cultures, and organisational learning.
