Assess the value of global markets

You will learn the frameworks and tools you need to execute on market expansion opportunities, from strategically assessing market potential to evaluating market entry strategies on behalf of your client.

The process begins with strategically identifying a market opportunity by evaluating potential markets for your cohort’s International Business Consulting Project. You will learn how to evaluate the alignment between your client’s corporate strategy and opportunities in the selected market. Through your final project, you will use competitive intelligence to assess the business landscape and execute on identifying market entry opportunities on behalf of your client.

The project includes a one-week business trip to meet with key stakeholders and validate your findings. These skills and experiences will provide you with the global perspective and confidence to execute on global market expansion.
