About the course
Mastering modern marketing practices
The proliferation of new technologies such as mobile, cloud computing and artificial intelligence have transformed customer behavior and disrupted marketplaces. As a result, marketing practices must also evolve. Marketing in a digital world is much more than marketing through digital channels; it's about harnessing automation to make marketing practices more productive and agile, mining new sources of customer data to create personalized communications, and leveraging analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to optimize marketing activities.
In this 8-week online program by Kellogg School of Management Executive Education, led by Professor Mohanbir Sawhney – a globally-recognized scholar, educator and author – you’ll gain an end-to-end perspective of the modern marketing process that starts with gathering customer insights, moves through content strategies and execution, and culminates in optimization and AI applications. Most participants can expect to dedicate 4-6 hours per week to watching the lectures, participating in discussions and completing exercises.
