Studies in global enterprise management might lead to various career opportunities. Two possibilities include global marketing strategy manager and farm manager.
Global Marketing Strategy Manager
Global marketing strategy managers analyze market research results and design plans to make products and services appealing to people around the world. They pay special attention to marketing goods and services to foreign markets.
As corporations around the world adopt a global business model, the need to develop marketing campaigns that take into account regional and national customs and trends has increased. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that job positions for marketing managers are expected to increase by 9% between 2014 and 2024, faster than the national average. According to the BLS, marketing managers earned median salaries of $124,850 as of 2015.
Global marketing strategy managers usually need at least a bachelor's degree in public relations, marketing or another business related topic. Master's degree programs in global enterprise management teach concepts and skills useful to those seeking advanced positions in the field. Candidates interested in global marketing learn about the global marketplace, business law and marketing ethics.
Many farms today export crops and provide food to nations all over the world. Farm managers must consider trade issues and global competition when setting product prices and deciding what crops to grow.
Farm managers are responsible for all aspects of the farm, from hiring to crop production. Corporations, universities and private individuals can hire farm managers. According to the BLS, jobs prospects for farmers, ranchers and other agricultural managers are expected to decline 2% between 2014 and 2024. As of May 2015, these workers earned a median of $64,170 per year.
There aren't any official licensure standards for farm managers. Some farm manager positions may only require a high school diploma. Larger farms may require a bachelor's degree in agriculture or business management. A master's degree may be necessary for positions dealing with global sales and marketing of food products.
In today's global economy, marketing managers and farm managers may end up working for global enterprises. Although farm management positions may only require a high school diploma and marketing managers a bachelor's degree, further education or certification may be beneficial in competing for international positions.
