This English taught winter course will take place from December 29, 2018 – January 19, 2019. Students can choose between two modules:

·         Marketing module: International Marketing and Sales: This module deals with the growing importance of Marketing Management for the success of a product and the company. Students will learn how to manage complex international marketing concepts.  Different requirements of BtoB and BtoC customer segments, various industries as well as of selling services or products are considered in this module study. By the end of the course, students should be able to conceptualize an international marketing concept and an international sales strategy.

·         Social Sciences module: Between Poverty and Conservation: Socio-Economics of Smallholder Farming in the Tropics: The conversion of forests and grasslands to intensively used agricultural land causes a substantial share of the global loss of plant and animal species. Much of the land conversion takes place in low-income countries in the tropics where the rural population struggles to overcome severe poverty. Even protected areas such as national parks are frequently under conversion pressure as small farming households (“smallholders”) encroach upon protected areas. In this course, we investigate landuse dynamics at several biodiversity “hotspots” using micro-level data on farming economics as well as analyses of local and regional institutional frameworks. Specifically, livelihood choices of smallholder farmers living at the edge of national parks in countries such as Indonesia, Madagascar, or Chile are studied. Insights are applied to assess policy options. (The syllabus can be downloaded here WUP2019_SocialSciences_CourseDescription )

The academic courses, which are taught by professors (and other experts) from the Department of Business Administration and the Department of Social Sciences, are complemented by field trips to companies and presentations by experts in their respective field.
