Learning outcomes

The aim of the course is to develop students' comprehension on international, especially cultural, diversity in consumer behaviour, business relationship development and marketing management.

In addition, practical skills related to intercultural communication, cross-cultural team-work, and personal selling are developed.


The course covers broadly the major issues in global marketing management both in business-to-consumers and business-to-business marketing. The course deepens the students' knowledge on customers in international marketing context, on various international marketing channels, and on marketing communications in a cross-cultural context.
