Arizona Global Campus Cultural Clothes Reflection and Presentation
Your organization is launching a new product that will be marketed to a specific country. It is your responsibility to choose a country, create the product, design the package, and plan a marketing campaign, and include samples of advertising. Remember that the dimensions of culture, i.e. individual or collectivist culture should be felt throughout the advertising, and explain why your product is unique for their cultural demands.
Most of the work can be done online through emails and group discussion chatrooms set up in D2L and Blackboard collaborate.
Students are to form 2 – 4 member teams by enrolling into a group using “Groups” tab. You can choose any product. Groups must choose a collectivist country or individualistic country. Make sure you confirm choices with me. You can do this by emailing me your country name, and product.
