Participants will choose ONE of the following options.
MKT 311: Consumer Behavior (3 credits)
MKT 325 / INBUS 325: International Marketing (3 credits)
Are you interested in learning how businesses and consumers market their products and brands differently based on the country of origin? Then join us in Milan, Italy and Lyon, France! We will explore the impacts of culture, economy, and media to assess the differences between marketing strategies used in the US and European markets. Experience international marketing first-hand by touring companies and observing the marketing decision-making from a European perspective. Seeing multiple countries and examining both the international marketing practices and the consumer behavior patterns of individuals in varied countries will lend itself to a more thorough understanding of marketing and consumption behavior.
