International Marketing (Marketing and Management) (N1586)

15 credits, Level 5

Spring teaching

This module acts as an introduction to, and develops your knowledge of, international marketing and the international environment.

You learn about the increased scope, risk and complexity faced by the international marketer, due to the increased level of uncertainty from operating in diverse and less understood environments.

Emphasis is placed on the identification of challenges presented by international marketing to equip you to deal with differences, opportunities and threats emerging from diverse economic, demographic, political/legal, cultural, technical and competitive environments.

The impact of international issues is related during the course to the marketing decision-making task at three levels:

  • the macro level at which country selection decisions are made
  • national level at which market entry decisions are made
  • market level where marketing mix decisions are made.

You are provided with a comprehensive overview of international marketing issues and an appreciation of the international business and marketing environment.
