About

Given the importance of export-led growth, particularly in terms of a small peripheral economy such as Northern Ireland, this course examines exporting and broader forms of global marketing. The factors that facilitate and prohibit internationalisation will be examined, and firm level processes and decision-making will be considered within the context of the broader international marketing environment. The course covers a range of concepts, issues and practices that are relevant to the study of global marketing. Guest speakers will be used to provide a better understanding of practical issues involved in export activity.

The course is aimed at professionals across a range of industries who are involved in export activities within their organisation or who are interested in seeking out new export/international market opportunities for their business. The course is suitable for managers at various levels.
