Description

Since 1989 we have witnessed the unification of Europe on the principles of democracy and a market economy. This process is far from its end, and differences between the old EU-15, newcomers and other Central and Eastern Europe countries (CEE) are significant. This module has been designed to understand these differences and to contribute to crafting the right strategy for these markets.

CEE is a target destination for many multinational companies headquartered in Western Europe, USA, Asia, etc. In order to succeed in this region, managers need to understand local specifics originating from different historic, economic and cultural backgrounds. They also need to understand that knowledge transfers from Western countries to CEE has been so successful that CEE has become a cradle of many fast-growing companies, serious competitors and even champions on the global business stage.
