This unit embraces the challenges of international marketing and is divided into two parts. The first part covers researching international markets: the challenges of undertaking international research and the gathering of marketing research to evaluate and then select alternative international markets; highlighting the opportunities and threats posed by differences in environmental factors and culture. The second part addresses the determination of international marketing strategy: examining decisions on product, branding, communications and pricing. Key themes throughout the unit are the impact of cultural differences and the ‘globalisation of markets’ debate.
