Contenu
This course will tackle the strategic marketing issues faced by local and international firms when they decide to market their brands at an international level in a world that is becoming digital.
This year, focus of the course is to understand how the digital revolution can bring new opportunities to smaller companies such as start-ups when they want to enter new international markets.
Developing at an international level is not an easy task for any company in a world that has become global and more and more digital. Competition is coming from everywhere and different consumer habits and cultures have to be understood by marketers in order to be successful. The level of digitalization is also different per regions of the world and this has an influence on the strategies that can be put in place.
These major changes require new digital competencies from managers that they don’t necessarily have. They will be reviewed in the course.
Objectives of the course are to 1) understand the impact of the digital revolution on international marketing strategies; 2) review the different issues faced by companies when marketing their brands internationally; 3) learn how to develop a marketing program for a company that wants to develop internationally.
