New unit on "Strategy and Emerging Markets"

January 2012

New unit on "Strategy and Emerging Markets" by EMIRG members at Discipline of International Business to be offered to MCom/MIB students in Semesters I & II 2013.

Do you have an Emerging Market Strategy? This is a question that an increasingly large number of company managers, especially in the developed western world, are trying to answer. This unit of study will lay the foundations of strategy making in emerging markets, with an emphasis on four of the largest emerging markets of the world today - Brazil, Russia, India and China - often termed as the BRIC countries. Utilizing frameworks from mainstream strategy and international business disciplines, this unit will analyze emerging markets from the perspective of primarily two simultaneous phenomena - multinationals from developed markets trying to tap into emerging markets, and companies from emerging markets globalizing their operations and consequently changing the global competitive landscape.
