Option 3. Wirtschafts Universität, Vienna, Austria

2020 Summer School Option 3: Wirtschafts Universität, Vienna, Austria

The summer school definitely complemented my studies in SUMS. I took the International Marketing module, which was highly focused on developing markets. It was really helpful to understand the marketing strategies companies can follow in order to grow outside their home markets and reach more premium markets.
