Global Marketing Management

A Program covering the key decisions and activities involved in global marketing, specifically relating to product and pricing decisions, distribution and communications decisions, and controlling global marketing activities.

This Program takes a decision-oriented approach to global marketing, and how to best select and enter markets.  It considers strategies for products, pricing decisions, distribution decisions, communications and promotion decisions.  The Program then covers the factors involved in cross-cultural sales negotiations and the organisation and control of global marketing programmes including global logistics and channel decisions, and how to do that well.  It explains how global marketing programmes must adapt to the preferences of customers with different levels of purchasing power, climates, languages, cultures, competition and methods of doing business, and explains why and how to do that effectively.  This is essential training for managers and marketers - and those aspiring to such careers - in small, middle and large-sized enterprises and multinational companies, who need to manage the global marketing and successful distribution and selling of products in different markets.
