International marketing focuses on the nature of the international marketplace and the decisions facing international marketing managers. International marketing is the process of planning and conducting transactions across national boundaries to create exchanges and satisfy the objectives of the parties involved in the exchange. International marketing is a sub-set of international business.
International marketing takes many forms ranging from exporting to wholly owned subsidiaries. The unit deals with the marketing activities and the management of those activities in foreign markets. The depth and breadth of a business’ involvement in marketing activities in foreign markets depends on many factors, e.g., its size, resources and extent of international experiences. International marketing is concerned with a wide range of organisations, from businesses that export to only one market, to large global companies marketing their products across many countries and managing the marketing activities through their own subsidiaries. International marketing issues relating to small firms and exporting will be emphasised throughout the course of this unit.
Marketing theory, international trade and international business management principles provide the foundation for this unit. The theoretical frameworks form the basis of explaining international marketing decisions, including market selection, mode of market entry, the management of marketing activities, and market coverage.
