Cross-cultural marketing and management

Yksittäinen kurssi

Managers and marketers often overlook culture when planning their marketing activities, strategies and other important business processes. However, consideration of culture in international business has been documented as crucial both by scholars and practitioners.

This course teaches how culture impacts various aspects of marketing and management. The students will receive knowledge on international business from a cultural perspective by considering topics such as national and organisational culture, culture and consumer behavior, intercultural communication and negotiation, global, local and glocal strategies, migrants and refugees and many others. The knowledge will be enriched by practical examples of doing business across cultures.

The students will learn how to apply the obtained knowledge by developing a cross-cultural marketing plan for entering a foreign market.

Students will also learn critical and ethical thinking, analytic and systematic thinking, information retrieval, problem-solving, networking and communication, interdisciplinary and multi-professional team work, ability to learn and adopt new things, acting in a multicultural environment, communication in English as well as other skills.
