COURSES

The Program evolves along the following course structure:

Marketing before Digital - The goal of this introductory session is to attune participants to what marketing management is. This is accomplished by the use of a computer-based simulation where participants in small teams assume the role of the marketing management team of a fictitious company. Their task is to assess the available market data, design the next steps and implement them via the simulation interface. In this way participants will develop a brief but vivid understanding of the role of marketing and its workings. (3h)

Introduction to Digital marketing - Basic terms and insights that are used in digital marketing are given, so that we are all on the same page once we get going. (3.5h)

Search Engine Marketing (SEO) - Learning how your website can be placed higher in the Google organic results through examples and optimization techniques. (3.5h)

Search Engine Marketing (PPC) - Learning how to set up a Google Adwords campaign to bring targeted traffic to your website, while not breaking the bank. (6.5h)

Email Marketing - Find out how to collect and segment users to make a successful newsletter, both in terms of design and content, while we examine the best tools specifically designed for this. (3h)

Marketing at the service of Digital: Digital marketing is the most recent and promising addition in marketing’s toolkit. However, digital marketing is the means not the goal of marketing. This session aims to give participants the opportunity to put all they have learned about digital marketing at the service of marketing. Following the presentation and discussion of a video case, participants in small teams assume the role of the marketing team for a real company, with the task of designing and presenting a digital marketing campaign.

Both the attendance of the tutorials and the completion of the test do not require physical presence in classroom and can be carried out whenever the participants wish. Our online tutorials are based on a careful selection and alignment of material, available online for free, allowing the participants to have a continuous, free access, with no time limitations.
