Thèmes abordés
This course will tackle the new challenges that marketers have to meet in the new and changing digital landscape.  This new digital landscape has a major impact on the way firms have to deploy their marketing strategies and structure their organization. The needs of consumers have changed and it is more difficult to satisfy them than before. Moreover, firms cannot communicate to consumers in a traditional way, they have to converse with them. They have to be in contact with the consumer wherever he is, on whatever support he uses and at any moment of the day.
The objectives of the course are to:
  • Review the latest changes affecting the marketing strategy (situation analysis, segmentation and positioning)
  •  Understand how the marketing organization has to be adapted to take into account the new digital environment
  • Review how to manage brands in this new environment taking into account traditional and digital marketing tools.
The course will cover 6 modules :
  • Module 1 : Marketing revolution in the new digital landscape
  • Module 2 : Impact of the changes on strategic marketing
  • Module 3 : Key changes in the media landscape
  • Module 4 : The power of social media marketing
  • Module 5 : New digital communication tools
  • Module 6 : Big data, artificial intelligence and privacy

des acquis des étudiants
  • First session: The course will be evaluated based on a team project (30%) and on an individual exam (70%). 
  • If the teamwork assignment is not delivered, students will not have completed the requirements of the course and will be given an “Absent” for the first session.
    • The exam will be organized on week 8
    • The teamwork assignment will be presented orally during week 7
  • Malus points will be attributed (up to 3 points) if the individual work is not done on time, poorly done or due to the absence to the conferences.
