About the Course

The course aims to transfer the fundamental knowledge and to form the basic competencies necessary for the development and the implementation of a business strategy in an emerging market. The students are going to improve their analyzing, decision making, and planning skills as well as the ability to recognize strategic opportunities and threats. The course requires the knowledge of basic economics concepts as the pre-requisite. It is preferable that the students have some practical entrepreneurial or marketing experience, but this is not obligatory. The course has a distinct stress to the practice of strategic management. Although a few fundamental theories are mentioned, the bulk of the ideas are based on simple though efficient applied model that are easy to understand and convenient to use. The multitude of examples and stories from the personal consulting and managerial experience of the author are the hallmark of the course. The author’s original drawings make the key concepts well memorable ad cozy to deal with. Do you have technical problems? Write to us:

This course is very effective for people who already "get business" but can use an 8 week intensive refresher at a higher level, with points about business strategies for emerging markets interwoven within the course. I was surprised by how in depth the professor gets and the course was harder than I thought (which is good). Well structured and affordable.

great course, its new idea, all courses and lectures are generic business rules which can not be implemented in emerging market. This course is best for those who want to do business in specially emerging market.

Thank you very much

This course is wonderful. It feels like it was just tailored for me and my current job which is to explore business opportunities in emerging markets. I like how it explained the analysis step by step. Another great thing is that it went beyond the concept of different models but how we could use the models, for example BCG, SWOT etc. Other courses just tell you what they are but do not show you how to apply it into strategy design. I recommend this course to everyone who want to learn strategy not just for emerging markets.

Coursera is a platform that unites students and professors from all over the world. In spite of this being a computer- based course, it gave me an all- round aspect of Business in various emerging markets. It has definitely made markets a very simple aspect to understand.
