Inhalte der LV

The course provides an overview of important global marketing decisions. The approach is managerial, interdisciplinary and strategic. Managerial in that it looks at global marketing tasks through the lens of marketing managers. Interdisciplinary in that global marketing decisions require a clear understanding of the interface of marketing with other functional areas. And strategic, in that marketing executives cannot function without an appreciation of business strategy and competitive advantage.

The course is taught online via MS Teams. It consists of pre-recorded lectures, live online discussions, live group presentations, group workshops and asynchronous Q&As via chats. A competitive business simulation also constitutes an important part of the course.

Opposing Trends and Strategic Tensions in Global Marketing Management

The lectures focus on some future trends and review their implications for marketing management. Whereas trends in the modern age tended to be linear and unidirectional, the trends in our postmodern times are more likely to be paradoxical.
