What is international marketing? In simple terms international marketing, or global marketing, is the marketing process of a good or service at a larger scale. A marketing department can be responsible for planning, executing the conceptualization, pricing, and distributing the ideas, goods, and services. For international marketing these same processes would be carried out across international borders serving a broader audience.
First off, a key point of international marketing is working with at least two countries. With that being said, studying in international marketing you’ll be able to develop specific marketing strategies for each target audience. International companies look for global marketers to help brand their products in new markets. What’s more, think of your favorite product, chances are these products are in other countries with a completely different brand identity.

Brands all over the world do this to appeal to the local markets.
