    This course offers an overview of theories and business practices related to building and managing brand identity at the international level. Starting from the legal connotations of a brand, key course components include the design and implementation of international branding and marketing programs through communication strategies and brand associations in order to build brand equity. Topics also explore new strategies aimed at extending or revitalizing existing brands to retain brand loyalty and consumer engagement, as well as to build an international community around the brand concept. A specific focus will also be dedicated to the panorama of the industrial and intellectual property rights (IPRs) for the management, economic exploitation, and protection of international brands. Through case studies, research, and active projects, students will fully experience and acquire a deeper understanding of the challenges and processes in globalizing a brand.
