From International to Global Marketing

17.12.2020

We are entering a new phase of globalization, in which there will be no single geographic centre, no ultimate model for success, no sure strategy for innovation and growth.

Companies from every part of the world will be competing – for customers, resources, talent and intellectual capital – with each other in every corner of the world’s markets. Products and services will flow from many locations to many destinations.

In this course you will  learn how to deal with – and benefit from – global markets.
