Academic Team

Welcome to the next generation of marketers! 

The business and marketing world is in tension: it is torn between Big Data and unbridled creativity; brand power, product excellence and customer-centricity expectations; profit-driven decision making and sustainability-driven consumption.

Crises and changes in mindset push more and more graduates to revisit how they want to run their professional lives in major groups or in smaller companies and startups. While companies need agile, resilient and uncertainty-proof leaders. 

Marketing functions make no exception to this trend and are at the core of this great shift. 

Join a program that trains the next generation of marketing leaders who do not practice marketing the “old good Procterian” way! 
Instead, come and develop your left and right brain: learn to develop and channel your creativity, to make enlightened data-driven decision, to grow your innovative and entrepreneurial mindset and to grow business for a better world. 

The MSc Marketing program trains thought leaders in marketing who excel in strategy, data-driven decision making and digital innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability-driven management. 

Our objective is to make you “job market ready” in 6-month time by equipping you with hard and soft skills that will help you make the difference.

From highly topical courses such as design-thinking and product development or sustainability-driven marketing to optional courses such as Neurosciences and AI in marketing or Business Development for startups, to Skills seminars training you to master your emotions and inner power to raise your game and succeed, we make sure you come fully prepared to highly demanding positions at the end of your curriculum. 

Finally, enjoy an academic team of professors and guest-speakers who are passionate about their job and who really care about student well-being and development. We have put together a team of kind and benevolent educators who work hand in hand to make you feel part of the marketing family. 

We are expecting you: welcome to the MSc Marketing!
