We will accomplish this by discussing the core body of knowledge on globalization, culture, foreign entry modes, and other marketing topics such as product development, , pricing, distribution, promotion, etc. from a cross-national and global perspective. Our coverage of the field is applied and from the perspective of the individual manager or the firm engaged in global business expansion.
