Insight into consumer behaviour is indispensable, and so is knowledge of the strategies and instruments that can be used to identify consumer needs and serve the market. Which internal and external processes are required to meet these goals? What will the product or service look like? What is the best way to communicate with the market? Which distribution channels should be used? And what about pricing policy? These issues are dealt with in the Master’s degree specialization in Marketing. Students analyze consumer markets and business markets, and the markets for goods and services. The focus will be on profit-making organizations, but the public sector and non-profit-making organizations will also be studied.
