International Marketing uses an integrated framework of marketing and international business concepts, and discusses the five key factors that impact any international marketing venture - culture, language, political and legal systems, economic systems, and technological differences – in relation to the core marketing concepts of markets, products, pricing, distribution (place), and promotion.
The book also covers the incorporation of sustainability and bottom-of-the-pyramid markets within each chapter, with content supported by case studies examples from both multinational companies and smaller local concerns.
International examples include Samsung, Costa Coffee, KitKat in Japan, Mobile Communications in Africa, India’s ArcelorMitall Steel, Wind Turbines in Finland, Uniqlo, and Banana Republic.
