Metodi didattici
  • Frontal lecturing, analysis of case studies, development of business plans and
    marketing plans are the main teaching tools.
    You will have the opportunity to use a web-based global marketing
    management research and planning program (GMMSO: www.gmmso4.com) in
    order to develop your own international marketing plan. You will also have the
    opportunity to work on an international project (X-Culture: www.x-culture.org)
    together with students from all around the world in global virtual teams and
    learn the best practices of cross-cultural collaboration through personal
    experience. Upon successful completion of the project, X-Culture participants
    receive achievement certificates. The best students in the X-Culture project
    may be encouraged to attend international conferences in order to present
    their work.
Modalità di valutazione
  • You have to submit an international marketing plan (possibly developed with with GMMSO
    www.gmmso4.com) about a company of your choice (as a .pdf to be sent to
    ernesto.tavoletti@unimc.it three days before the exam) and discuss it at the final oral exam. You
    also have to take part in the X-Culture project (www.x-culture.org), an experiential learning project
    that involves around 110 universities in 40 countries: working in a virtual international team, you
    will develop a business proposal for a global company. The X-Culture project is from March to May
    and is compulsory for both attending and non-attending students. Write to
    ernesto.tavoletti@unimc.it in advance (January 2017 or early February 2017) and before the course
    starts, in order to reserve a seat in X-Culture. GMMSO and X-Culture allow to assess both your
    ability to work on your own and your ability to work in an international team.
