This minor is aimed at students who want to add a strategic marketing management “plus” to their existing higher educational marketing level. These competences are the starting point, and will be developed further and in more depth.

Profile of the programme

We focus on the management of strategic marketing issues, in order to offer students sufficient knowledge, proficiency and skills, a deeper insight into complex, unstructured strategic marketing issues. This minor aims at enhancing students’ ability to convert opportunities into successful commercial activities.

The backbone of this minor is a real-life marketing case team project for an existing SME company, in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce.

This minor utilizes state-of-art marketing literature, reports, recent articles from professional economic and management periodicals, extensive readers plus an interactive website. Business School cases, to be solved individually or as a team, plus regular guest lecturers and company visits further add a real-life sense to the minor’s courses. Assessment takes place by means of a variety of methods, e.g. individual and team portfolios.

After completion of the programme, students will have obtained the formal NIMA-B1 marketing certificate. They can opt to sit for the certified and accredited NIMA-B2 (European Marketing Confederation: Marketing Manager) or Fenedex (European Export Manager) exam, parallel to this programme.

Entry requirements

A good working knowledge of English is a prerequisite. Additionally, students need to have marketing skills at the NIMA-B1 level. An entry test is part of the procedure.
