MKT30080 Global Marketing

Academic Year 2022/2023

The course introduces participants to the various aspects of global marketing. The module’s overarching objective is to develop participants’ skills in the identification, analysis and solving of problems encountered in international marketing operations. Increasingly, international markets are becoming both homogenous (thanks to technology), and heterogeneous due to multifaceted environmental and socio-economic factors across the globe. International marketers are therefore faced with complex marketing challenges and opportunities. These issues demand a deeper and broader understanding of the environmental, competition- and company-specific dimensions, in order to promote the creation of value for various stakeholders and communities by companies.
