Obiettivi del corso

The course analyses the international marketing strategies to make companies competitive in the global marketplace. Even though marketing principles and concepts are universally applicable, the environment within which the marketer must implement marketing plans can change dramatically from country to country. The course deals with the critical issues of country choice, foreign country entry, market segmentation and international marketing mix to make products suitable to foreign consumers (product management and branding, pricing, promotion and distribution channels).

The aim of the course is to provide students the knowledge and tools to comprehend the complexities of marketing products and services around the world both on a strategic and operational level.
