About the course

In this competitive commercial landscape, numerous brands and businesses compete for consumers’ attention. Only a few manage to attain the status of household brands and inspire loyalty and recurring business.

The past decade has witnessed an unprecedented change in ou​r environment and lifestyles due to advances in digital technology. Mass knowledge dissemination via the internet, online shopping, mobile devices, and lately, the dramatic growth in sales of virtual and augmented reality headsets is dramatically changing consumer behaviour and the way in which disruptive brands and services are engaging with their customers.

Furthermore, neuroscientists are now finding evidence that these highly immersive and engaging technologies may be re-wiring the brains of so-called digital natives with some very real implications for how brand owners will need to adapt their communication strategies in order to build successful relationships with today’s youth and young adult markets worldwide.
