duration 3 weeks
credits 6 ECTS

Whether or not a company wants to expand internationally, it cannot escape the reality that an ever-increasing number of firms are exporting, importing, outsourcing, and/or manufacturing abroad. In short, international marketing is not an option, but a necessity. This course recognizes that we live in a flat, hyper-connected, and interdependent world in which time horizons are compressed, communications are instantaneous, and customers are also competitors. It will consider strategies that firms can undertake to prosper in such a dynamic environment. Working in teams, students will develop a plan for launching a product or service into an emerging market such as China, India, Brazil, South Africa, or Indonesia.
