Study Abroad in Munich, Germany

Spring 2020 - International Marketing (MRKT 5980)

Program Description 
In a world of "Borderless Markets" and global customers, it is imperative to expand our knowledge base of marketing to a diverse customer base who is not limited in any way from products and services offered internationally. Professional marketers today constantly need to grow their capabilities for the development of critical "touch points" to the global customer.

During this program, students will have the opportunity to visit international corporations like BMW, Siemens, Bayer, Union Carbide and Boehringer Ingelheim. These visits will allow students to network with other "borderless" professionals and learn about marketing strategies used by these corporations. In addition to corporate visits, students will participate in sessions with business graduate students from Munich based universities to gain invaluable networking experiences.

This experience will augment degrees as well as expand students' personal and professional backgrounds as an international business professional in an ever expanding marketplace.

  • Study Abroad in Munich, Germany- a distinctive global city.
