We intend to explore the relationship between international politics and business with you. Though often overlooked, international political environment shapes markets and corporates in many meaningful ways. Governments and their interactions impact businesses today more and more as sanctions and embargoes are introduced and lifted, diplomatic and political quarrels and alliances change the strategic environment in which firms operate.
But on the other hand, the ever-expanding international business relations transform global politics, too. Transnational and multinational companies are becoming more and more important international political actors on their own. Therefore understanding the relationship between public and private sector, the role of advocacy, lobbying and negotiation is key to make well-informed international business decisions.
How do international companies stay on their feet in the world-wide competitive environment? You can learn about different solutions to this problem by attending our lectures on international marketing and branding. By visiting Zwack Unicum Plc. and Kehida Thermal Spa and Waterpark you can learn from professionals first-hand how they made the name of their company well-known all over the world. Furthermore, there will be a TED Talks inspired section where you can hear innovative speeches about these topics as well as marketing psychology. You will also have the opportunity to gain knowledge on cross-cultural management – a skill crucial for international companies.
A group of young students dreamt about creating a professional summer program for students interested in the important issues of our world. They couldn't imagine the effect of this idea then.
Their hard work resulted in a unforgettable memory for the participants, and the organizers as well. Everyone could learn from the lessons about sustainable development, whilst being amongst people, whom we now call friends.
