IMGT 8667 - MnagngDvlpEntrprsInEmrgngMrkts
This course operates at the crossroads of three current phenomena of opportunity: (A) the growth and development of frontier and emerging market nations, (B) international entrepreneurship, and (C) applications of technology. It is designed for those who are interested in working in frontier and emerging market nations by either creating and developing small, emerging social impact or business venture enterprises and NGOs, or scaling them up for growth, regional expansion and internationalization. Topics include four modules: (1) performing social or economic market opportunity and business model assessment, (2) creating non-profit or business enterprises involved at the micro-enterprise, start-up level, (3) managing the fast-developing scale-up level for regional expansion and franchising, or (4) developing frontier market entry by MNEs. It is a practical, case-studies-based, hands-on, discussion-driven class focusing on managerial decisions for marketing plans and programs in a variety of enterprises, products, services, and social/environmental causes in frontier and emerging nations and regions. The course is relevant to a variety of management specializations and business certificates or international business plans, and is suitable for those desiring to be frontier market scouts or entrepreneurs as well as those planning to work for international enterprises that are operating in frontier or emerging nations. The geographic scope of the course includes Africa, Latin America, Asia and South Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and the Middle East.
