About Marketing, Master - at Erasmus School of Economics

Our marketing programme distinguishes itself from other programmes by offering an intricate combination of marketing practice and academic marketing insights, based on the latest data analysis tools in economics and marketing as well as on marketing practice cases. The unique combination of models, structures and real-life practice cases covers the entire marketing area – from strategic marketing, target market selection and positioning, b-to-b and b-to-c segmenting, operational marketing planning, branding, as well as measuring and quantifying marketing effectiveness.

Today’s companies expect marketers to have to be proficient in using data to understand customers and make evidence-based decisions, and to be flexible in the use of both traditional as well as new marketing communication media to contact and influence consumers and businesses. Obtaining your marketing degree at Erasmus School of Economics will fully prepare you for these challenges and to excel in marketing practice in increasingly competitive markets.

During the programme you will address questions such as:

  • How can we use data science to optimise the customer’s online experience?
  • How can models, structures and insights help us to understand customers?
  • How can we translate the latest theoretical insights into successful practical applications?
  • What is it we can learn from the wide variety of marketing practice cases?

Is this the right choice for you?

Do you want a splendid marketing job once you have finished your study? Do you already envision what it is that you would like to do as brand manager, product manager or marketing manager? Or would you like to approach marketing from the distributor’s perspective, e.g. as a category manager? Our curriculum is designed to develop expertise in three key areas: product & brand management, marketing analytics and sales & account management. The programme combines and applies the latest marketing insights and models with the day-to-day practice of marketing operations, market research, international business-to-business marketing as well as business-to-consumer marketing. Therefore, our programme is highly appreciated by international corporations as well as domestic small and medium sized enterprises and offers you excellent chances to obtain an attractive marketing job once you have obtained your degree.
