Leverage international market opportunities for growth

Where are you looking to find your next business growth opportunities? Do you have a growth challenge that involves expanding outside your home market?

While there are different ways to foster and secure growth, one of the most important is to look abroad. However, tapping into new markets requires specific tools and strategies and a sound understanding of the international context in order to be successful.

IMD’s International Growth Strategies program will help you find the right opportunities for your company to successfully grow into new markets. You will learn to think systematically about your international growth options, how to seize them, and how to adapt your business to thrive abroad.

Come with your specific international growth challenge.

Develop a better understanding of your differentiators, paving the way for new growth.

Gain a process and frameworks to assess and evaluate international growth opportunities for your business.

Develop your strategy and a concrete action plan for successful international growth with the help of faculty and coaches.

Accelerate your organization’s readiness and adaptation for international success.

Discover the latest mega trends and how SMEs can benefit from internationalization in the current landscape.

You and your class

The program is designed for managers and executives from firms which are primarily domestic but looking to expand abroad, including corporate business development managers, country/ regional heads, international marketing managers and commercial leads. The program also welcomes entrepreneurs and founders of fast-growing businesses.

The typical company profile includes:
– Mid-sized firms looking to grow abroad for the first time.
– Large domestic firms with a minimal international presence, looking to grow abroad.
– Fast-growing start-ups that want to take their first step into internationalization.

The International Growth Strategies program was refreshing, insightful and practical. The tools and frameworks provided are allowing me to rethink and improve our international expansion vision in fundamentally new ways.
