Dr. Martin S. Roth became President of the University of Charleston in July 2018. Before coming to West Virginia, he was Dean and Professor of Management & Marketing at the Barney School of Business, University of Hartford. He was previously Chair of the Sonoco International Business Department, Executive Director of the flagship International MBA Program, and Chief Innovation & Assessment Officer at the University of South Carolina’s top ranked Darla Moore School of Business.
Douglas Quackenbos is a Lecturer in Marketing at the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, where he teaches B2B Marketing, Strategy, Sales, and Global Marketing to upper-level undergraduate and MBA students. Prior to joining the UofSC in 2016, he had a 27-year corporate career – including over a decade of international assignments in Europe and Latin America – leading multinational organizations in global business development initiatives.
While CountryManager has become the centerpiece of many marketing courses, professors still have to piece together other readings, cases, videos, and assignments. So, while CountryManager has filled the applied and experiential learning gap nicely, the opportunity to provide instructors with an end-to-end package of course materials remains.
The eBook consists seven chapters. The first three chapters cover the first module of the course that sets up the strategic imperative of international expansion for organizational growth. The final four chapters cover the second module on strategic and tactical considerations for global marketing success.
