Programme 2019

Topic 2018: Entering New Markets

Students will plan a market entry for a company of their own choice. Lectures within the international week will provide know how, ideas and best practices to help with the assignment.


Every lecturer will give his/her lecture (should take 90 minutes) twice: once for students of media management, once for students of media and communications consulting.
Lecturers are welcome to take part in other lectures to provide further insights and links to other topics and contribute to discussions to give students added value.

The total amount of units for the whole activity is 4 academic hours (1 academic hour = 45 minutes)

Participants are advised to arrive on Sunday, 25 November 2018 and depart on Thursday, 29 November 2018.

There is no charge for attendance. Lunches in the university refectory from Monday to Wednesday are included. In addition, there is a hosted International Dinner for the lecturers. All lecturers are expected to finance their travel and accommodation costs.
