Aims, contents and method of the course

The course seeks to provide an overview of key concepts and analytical techniques of international marketing and illustrate its role in the global economy. Being designed for students with prior knowledge of marketing principles, the course also highlights some research contributions in international marketing.
Content: Introduction to International Marketing, Internationalization Decisions, Internationalization Theories, Firm's international competitiveness, International Market Analysis, International Market Selection

The course involves a combination of formal lectures and workshop sessions. Most sessions will include a short case study and/or discussions based on the academic articles; students will be expected to be prepared to discuss them in class. This is an integral part of the course and the material covered is examinable.

In case, due to COVID, the course cannot take place on location, it will be offered online during the same dates/times. In this case, students are expected to have their cameras on during all sessions.

Assessment and permitted materials

Performance in the course will be assessed as follows:
Team Assignment: 35%
Quiz 1: 20%
Final Exam: 45%

No material other than a dictonary may be used in the quiz and in the final exam.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

As the course has “prüfungsimmanenten Charakter”, attendance is compulsory throughout the semester (see also Admission Policies on our homepage); more than three absences will automatically result in a “failed” grade.

Course Grading: In total, a minimum of 50 percent needs to be attained to pass the course. The grading system looks as follows: 0 to 49% - grade 5, 50 to 59% - grade 4, 60 to 69% - grade 3, 70 to 79% - grade 2, 80 to 100% - grade 1. Students who fail must repeat the course. No alternative formats of assessment or make-ups will be offered.

Examination topics

Assignment: The group project will involve the preparation and presentation of a Country Market Report for a particular product/service in a particular country. The same grade will be awarded to all students belonging to the same group. Detailed instructions will be provided in the course.
Quiz: The quiz is a single-choice test which will take place during one of the sessions. It will be based on any part of the course covered by that day. More details will be provided in class.
Final Exam: The exam will be based on the textbook, additional readings and material covered in the lectures (including case studies and journal articles). The final exam takes 45 minutes and comprises single-choice questions.

Reading list

Textbook: The required textbook for the course is: Hollensen S. (2020): Global Marketing, 8th edition, Prentice Hall. Using earlier is also possible, however, please check for any differences in chapter numbers and case studies.

Reading List: A list of selected additional readings, which are all examinable (!), will be provided on Moodle.
