Section Description

The objective of this course is to introduce you to international marketing and to provide you with analytical tools and an understanding of what firms and managers need to know to compete in an increasingly global economy. We will accomplish this by discussing the core body of knowledge on globalization, culture, foreign entry modes, and other marketing topics such as product development, pricing, distribution, promotion, etc. from a cross-national and global perspective. Our coverage of the field is applied and from the perspective of the individual manager or the firm engaged in global business expansion. It is hoped that, as a result of successfully completing the requirements of this course you will have a better understanding of the following questions: (1) What is globalization and what are some of the pros and cons of globalization? (2) How do CAGE (cultural, administrative, geographical and economic) factors influence a firm’s global expansion strategies? (3) How are emerging markets different from developed markets? (4) How can marketing strategies be devised to incorporate these differences?

Section Expectation
