About

Are you passionate about people and communication, and do you know how to convince others? Can you easily think outside of the box? Do you like to put yourself in someone else’s shoes? As a marketer, it’s your job to think like your customers. We train you to become a result-oriented networker with work experience and knowledge of marketing theories. At the end of the study programme, you’re able to do research, reach the right target, know how to leverage the digital world for your goals, and ultimately offer advice to the organisation based on your creative insights.

About Marketing Management

Marketing Management is a 4-year bachelor programme. You learn to understand why some products are successful while others aren’t, as well as how you can influence that. The study programme covers all aspects of marketing: from doing research and analysing markets to explore the needs of your customers, to learning about the power of channels like Instagram or TikTok and how the digital world can be used to create new opportunities. As a Marketing Management student, you gradually transform into a marketing expert with experience in an international environment.
