Learning Missions

Geoskope shows you how the world works.

Getting to know a country and how it operates can take many years of hard work, and too frequently includes costly lessons and expensive failures. But Geoskope has done the ground work for you and can help you gain unparalleled insights into business-relevant economic, political, and social issues.

We can provide you with the most penetrating and practical knowledge available, whether you’re:

  • Just getting to know one of our countries,
  • Going back to get current on issues and trends, or
  • You need help understanding something very specific for your company or organization.

There is no better or faster way to get the real story on key global countries than to go and see them on a Geoskope learning mission. We can help:

  • Companies
  • Philanthropic organizations
  • Universities
  • Public agencies
  • Nonprofits or NGOs
  • Trade associations
  • Groups of forward thinkers

What you’ll learn

You’ll get the best information, a real sense for how things work, and contact with the most knowledgeable and influential people in the country.

  • Learn where to go and what to do (and what not to do).
  • Meet leaders and hear how they get things done.
  • Get the real story on trends and opportunities.
  • See how successful organizations adjust to local differences.
  • Get first rate economic and political knowledge.
  • Accurately decode political and bureaucratic behavior.
  • Gain cultural insight that goes far beyond “bow, kiss, or shake hands.”
  • Have a direct immersion into the lives, times, and rationales of emerging market consumers.
  • Understand the mechanics of important risks.
  • Know what the locals know.
  • Meet potential partners.

How we do it

  • Missions can last from a few days to 2 weeks or more and are guided by our top field experts.
  • Our missions are custom-tailored trips to key markets that consist of workshops, site explorations, and interviews designed to give you the most accurate and penetrating understanding of the business landscape, the state, and its people.
  • Geoskope draws upon the world’s most respected experts, experienced practitioners, and eminent speakers to give you a full-spectrum understanding of your relevant opportunities.
  • Participants will see firsthand how the target market is changing, how it functions, and the lines of causality to effects on the ground. This service is one of a kind.

Who You’ll Meet

  • Business leaders
  • Former government officials
  • Advertising executives and consumer behavior researchers
  • Experienced news and magazine editors and journalists
  • Respected analysts
  • and many other experts from a varied array of industries

Geoskope missions are currently available to groups by commission. Let’s talk about your needs so that we can develop a foreign market learning program for your group.



  • Mexico has been making major strides in recent years to become one of the world’s most important emerging geographies. It has made a concerted push for the top of the global supply chain, energy dynamics in North America have caused tectonic shifts in the global energy landscape, and Mexican consumers are becoming ever more attractive. This picture is complicated, however, by a gruesome domestic security problem with the drug cartels.

  • India is Asia’s third largest economy after China and Japan. With half of its population under 25, high economic growth, and enormous domestic market potential with 1.2 billion people, it is also one of the world’s most important up-and-coming economies. India is complex and diverse, though, and many a company has made the grave mistake of entering without taking the time to get to know how it works. Geoskope can help you…

  • Do you need to get on the inside track on a foreign country, but don’t see it listed here? Tell us. We can probably organize a learning mission for you. And you can keep your finger on the pulse with the most important countries by developing a year-round foreign market program.
