Inhoud vak

The course is one of the essential pieces of the semester on the
international context of the IBA program and specifically introduces you
to the emerging economies context in the field of marketing during
Period 5.

When we look at the global landscape today, we see two on-going
struggles: the drive for prosperity and development and the desire to
retain identity and traditions. On one hand, the economic flux in the
developed world is prevailing and the emerging markets are becoming a
global growth engine. On the other hand, weak institutions, cultural
clashes, and political tensions are encountered in the emerging
economies and these make business relationships with the developed world
risky.
Today’s marketer operates in this international environment and hence
has the responsibility to understand and communicate to others in the
company about the new world. In essence, the course is designed to help
you gain insights about the consumer and competitive landscape in the
emerging economies and thereby become the next era’s marketer. You will
investigate the competencies of the thriving local emerging market
companies and the factors that make global companies create successful
business models in these economies. As we contemplate on the market
driving practices in emerging markets, we will set the stage for deeper
insights for the fundamental issues that shape the marketing strategy
today.
