Masters in Marketing

General

Program Description

The master’s program in Marketing provides our graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to gain a thorough understanding of the challenges, customer-focused business and non-profit organizations are confronted with. Marketing traditionally helps these firms in creating value by identifying the needs of their customers and providing them with innovative products and services. But in a globalized world that is changing rapidly, there are several new developments which affect current and future marketing practices:

Effective marketing has to combine well-established planning and research techniques with a process of adaptive experimentation for more rapid learning and improving decision accuracy.
Marketers encounter a growing availability and widespread use of databases derived from consumer surveys, scanner data, and interactive online media. In addition, search engines and social media have changed the way consumers obtain information, make decisions, and interact with each other and companies. This requires marketing professionals to possess advanced analytical and quantitative skills such as statistics, database marketing, and market research, but also qualitative skills to better understand changing consumers' current and future purchase and consumption patterns.
The current economic crisis and scarce resources make marketing performance measurement gaining importance in current management practice.
