This course explores the role of International Brand Management for creating sustainable value. The course is about learning how to manage global brands sustainably. It builds on international marketing concepts and techniques to develop an in-depth understanding of international brand management. Brands are the most valuable assets of international firms. Brands embody the firm’s strategy and drive its execution. They represent what an international firm stands for and what it does. This course highlights the sustainability implications of managing brands and delivers a comprehensive set of strategic tools for effective international brand management. As such, this course is intended not only for students interested in branding, but also for those interested in sustainability, innovation, new product and service development, entrepreneurship, and value management. The course presents the types of decisions involved in managing global brands and addresses contemporary challenges and opportunities.
Please note that this course will be held online.
• Explain the contingencies that affect the way global brands are managed sustainably.
• Draw on analytical concepts used as the building blocks of managing global brands.
• Evaluate the performance of brand decisions and assess sustainability implications.
