Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

During the module the student will explore the internationalisation in emerging product and geographic markets. International companies respond to external or internal opportunities and use their creative efforts to introduce new products and services. They, in turn, help capture and retain market share, increase profitability, and achieve competitive advantage in international markets.

The module analyses the emergence of products and services, as well as servitisation of solutions integrating design and technology. It also explores geographic emerging markets in Asia, Eastern Europe/Russia, Africa and Latin America. It brings cross-country differences in strategies across emerging markets, discusses the effects of internationalization on emerging markets and assesses risks and opportunities in emerging markets and transitional economies.
