? Any news event .
What topics are NOT appropriate?

And, of course, ANY MARKETING/BUSINESS NEWS THAT FOCUSES ON DOMESTIC IMPLICATIONS, NOT INTERNATIONAL TRADE IMPLICATIONS. If you are unsure about a current event you are considering, please email me to ask about it.
(a) Article title, author, publication date, and periodical name
(b) A brief explanation of the International Marketing event the article reports. (50 words max)
(c) A statement of at LEAST ONE international marketing concept ( the concept name) covered in our course that applies to understanding the issue, problem, and/or implications of the International Marketing event. (10 words max)
(d) An explanation of the issue, problem, and/or implications of the International Marketing event from the perspective of the company’s international performance and International marketing strategy success. (75 words max)
Example, suppose a student is analyzing Harley Davidson’s launch of an affordable, small-engine motorcycle line in Cuba:
(d) A major issue with this marketing strategy is that Harley Motorcycles are known for their performance and their rebellious All-American brand image. However, the small engines likely undermine performance and doing business in a Communist nation could undermine the brand’s rebellious, freedom-centric American image.
(e) Analysis of the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the International Marketing strategy (segmentation, targeting, positioning, branding, product, pricing, promotion, or distribution strategy) that is at the core of the International Marketing event the article reports. and the international marketing topic from our course that you state in part (c) in your analysis ( the concept name). (150 words max)
(e) The effectiveness of Harley Davidson’s can be understood from the perspective of a product and brand’s representation of cultural values. Cultural values are the standards and ideals that a society upholds and considers important. If Harley Davidson is to succeed with Cuban consumers, it would have to tone down or change its freedom-centric, rebellious brand message because these American cultural values conflict with the more collectivistic, authoritarian values that characterize Cuban culture. Furthermore, the size of the motorcycles and their engines is different from their traditional product offerings in the U.S. and Europe. Consumers in other parts of the world may encounter the weaker performance Harley motorcycles by visiting Cuba or through Cuban consumers’ social media communications. This could dilute the brand’s high performance brand image around the world.
