Business for Emerging Markets
Thanks to a long period of strong economic growth and increasing purchasing power of a growing group of consumers, many emerging economies are also becoming more and more interesting as new markets for goods and services.
At the same time, these economies are characterised by the presence of ‘institutional gaps’, both in infrastructure and regulation. Although these gaps complicate doing business, they also encourage the development of new, innovative business models. Which is exactly what our programme Business for Emerging Markets focuses on, and therefore, it offers you content that goes beyond established international business theories and practices.
