Students examine the definition of “global marketing” and its objectives and challenges in addition to today’s main emerging markets and differences with our domestic market. The course chronologically follows each step of the global marketing approach, including the analysis of foreign market’s environment and context, analysis of the different entry modes in the targeted foreign market, creation of the global marketing strategy, marketing plan and communication plan, and other aspects of a global strategy (global organization of logistics, supply chain and human resource, global controlling).
