The MSc in Marketing & Technology aims to transform students into uniquely-trained individuals possessing the knowledge and skills required to be successful marketers in dynamic and technology-driven industries.
Companies such as Netflix, Airbnb, and Tesla have one thing in common: they break with the norms of existing markets and employ unconventional, technology-driven marketing approaches. Traditional marketing education all too often neglects the marketing abilities that these companies possess.
The MSc in Marketing & Technology departs from the rather passive marketing logic that assumes markets and marketing channels are fixed features of reality. Instead, it shows how managers can proactively shape and create new markets and marketing landscapes.
The goal of this programme is to transform students into uniquely-trained individuals who understand how to leverage emerging technologies, such as 3D printing, Virtual Reality, and the Internet of Things, to design unique customer experiences, disrupt existing markets, and create entirely new ones.
The programme will direct students’ attention to significant and emerging technological trends, and show how they can address important social and environmental problems.
It seeks to enable students to discover new market opportunities that will have a positive impact on the economy, society, and the environment. Students will be equipped with the skills required to effectively navigate today’s technology-dominated marketing environments, and they will learn how to be successful marketers in the digital marketing era.

Companies across many industries have to cope with increasingly technology-dominated marketing environments. This programme is a response to the marketing needs of such companies.

Designed to give you an in-depth understanding of the rapidly evolving field of digital marketing, this course will also give you the skills to research and devise effective strategies to help organisations be competitive.
Through a detailed understanding of consumer motivations and habits, you will explore ways to increase brand loyalty and market share through the use of the latest digital technologies and platforms across all marketing channels. This extensive theoretical and practical knowledge will provide you with a valuable skills base and will ensure you can make a significant and measurable contribution to your employer?s profitability.
In preparation for a successful career as a strategically minded digital marketer, you will choose to either research and write your dissertation to gain an in-depth knowledge of your area of interest, or you will manage your own live commercial project.
