In recent years, the digital universe has acquired an unquestionable social and economic preponderance. New consumers with access to unlimited information are a no longer passive agent, they are active interlocutors who seek and construct more convenient solutions. More immediate, more conscious and informed consumers demand faster and more flexible solutions and responses. These consumers challenge a conventional marketing approach and the way to do business.
Management and businesses have been suffering from indelible changes as a result of technological advances. On the one hand, there is an uprise of technology-based business, but also the need to incorporate the potentialities and characteristics of new technologies in management models.
Therefore, the digitization of new and existing businesses is no longer an option but an inevitability. As companies and institutions need to respond to this challenge of the global and digital age, with a new business culture led by new managers.
In response to the challenges posed by the increasingly digital environment and the need for companies and businesses to incorporate these trends, the MPhil in Marketing and Digital Business provide training that balances the ability to master the methods and tools of approach to the market, skills to develop businesses in a global context, and the application of technological potential on business.
McKinsey & Company, a reputed international consultant, says in a recent study* on the digital economy that "bold, tightly integrated digital strategies will be what distinguishes winning companies, and the greatest returns will go to those who start digital disruptions." The consultancy concludes by suggesting that companies should act decisively in both the creation of digital businesses and the digitization of existing business models.
The MPhil in Marketing and Digital Business responds to this challenge and need. The combination of marketing, business, and digital presents itself as the differentiating aspect compared to other offers at the MPhil level. With the skills acquired during this training, the student will be able to develop and operationalize business strategies capable of meeting the challenges of the digital economy.
The content reflects this innovative approach combining key themes for strategic design - such as strategy, consumer trends, strategic and operational marketing and brand management - with themes that enable the strategy to be implemented - such as integrated communication in digital media, marketing Intelligence, analytical marketing, digital labs, and e-commerce.
The learning strategy focuses on the learner and the experiential dimension of learning, focusing on learn-by-doing, problem-solving and best practices seminars. In the final part of the MPhil, in addition to the dissertation, the possibility of choosing an internship or a project allows not the only contact with the business reality, but also the possibility of developing innovative ideas with business potential.
