All over the world, the key of successful business is based on knowing your customers: understanding their needs, wants and demands. What benefits and unique propositions are you able to offer? Is your customer unhappy, satisfied or moreover delighted with your offering?
How is the competition responding to your activities and success? You may want to expand to other markets and countries too. You will certainly have to adapt your company’s strategy to cope with the fast changing macro and micro environments. Communication is also changing dramatically. The customer likes to be in control of messages he receives. Widespread advertising is switching to narrowcasting, direct marketing, and ideally to 1-to-1 interactive communications.
Within this dynamic and rapidly changing environment, your personal traits and understanding how to co-operate are extremely important for all internal and external business contacts. The Short Degree Marketing Programme offers insights in business strategies, international marketing strategies, advanced marketing communication techniques and communication skills.
