About the course

Marketing in a globalised and digitised world

Marketing is globalised; marketing is digitised. The days of isolated or shielded markets – closed to foreign suppliers or competitors – are no more. All companies now operate in an international environment where customers can be scattered around the globe and new entrants can emerge from any economy with different business models and cost structures.

The Strategic Marketing Programme is a five-day intensive course that will sharpen your marketing skills, including designing, organising, executing and evaluating marketing activities in this complex global environment. You will explore today’s big marketing challenges, such as the impact of social media on brand management, low-price competition and market commoditisation.

Reframing current challenges as opportunities and providing participants with conceptual and practical tools, you will return to your worplace ready to make a difference.
