So far I am thinking definitely marketing strategy, and also managing people, also looking at either trade blocs or tariffs for a 20 marker.

No, I was thinking more theme 1 marketing as it’s been pretty neglected over the past 2 years papers, but I have also payed extra attention to to the EPG model as that too is yet to come up

Ethnocentric basically means that the business will market their products the same all over the world. And that they offer the exact same thing everywhere. Polycentric means that for each country they adapt the product and brand name, to make it tailored to the needs of each market. And Geocentric means that they keep the big brand name the same, but change the product slightly i.e. McDonald's change some of the food their offer based on culture and eating habits in that country, but all the restaurants are still called McDonald's. It's based on Glocalisation.

No. Only Boston matrix. Ansoff's matrix is a whole chapter in theme 3.

We can still refer to Ansoff’s if it relevant I think tho as I noticed it was quickly mentioned in Theme 4 I just didn’t know if it was fully covered
