Program Description

MSc in Marketing and Transformative Economy

USI Università della Svizzera italiana

Goals and Contents

One out of three business school graduates ends up in a marketing-related job. Almost half of the price we pay for products on a daily basis covers marketing-related costs.
Due to its impressive relevance, marketing invites unprecedented considerations about its cultural effects, societal impact, and implications for individual and collective well-being.

The Master in Marketing and Transformative Economy is a two year, 120 ECTS programme enabling participants to acquire critical analytical and practical skills grounded in solid and fresh marketing knowledge. Participants should expect to become conscious decision-makers familiar with a variety of market situations and systems (b2b, b2c, b2b2c, c2b, c2c, access-based, gift, and sharing economy). They should also expect to sharpen their ability in interpreting markets, executing effective solutions, forecasting and measuring the effects of their work in terms of competitive, financial, and socio-environmental performances.

Graduates can aspire to enter companies of different size in a plethora of marketing positions.
Due to its uniqueness, the Master helps join both traditional marketing-oriented companies and innovative enterprises active in emerging market systems (c2b, c2c, etc.).
Due to its focus on well-being, the Master supports candidates to enter either well-being-driven industries (e.g. arts & culture, financial services, sport, food & beverage, insurances, healthcare, pharma) or public and non-profit organizations, whose mandate is to pursue customer welfare.
