While international markets offer valuable opportunities for business expansion and growth, they also come with a unique set of challenges. To compete globally, businesses must be able both to take advantage of the opportunities that the global market place provides and to deal effectively with the challenges it offers. The Global Management major is specially designed to provide managers and entrepreneurs with the knowledge and skills to take on the challenges of the international market place and to compete effectively in a global economy.
At the core of the major are courses in international business management and economics. These courses focus on the development of effective business strategies for entering and competing in international markets and for effective management in diverse cultural and political settings. Additional courses focus on specific challenges for marketing and finance that international business operations create.
The key to effective marketing is understanding customers and delivering what they want, when they want it, at a price they want to pay. This requires you to analyze both hard numbers and less structured qualitative information, to have insight into the reasons behind customer behaviour, and to develop strategy based on this analysis and insight.
Specific topics include analyzing customers and understanding why they buy, gathering and analyzing customer and market data and developing successful programs for communications and distribution. In the process you will develop an understanding of how customers make decisions and how to influence them, how to analyze markets and the strategies of competitors, how to develop successful advertising and promotional strategies, and how to successfully develop and manage a brand.
