Learning Objectives

The amount of the exchange that occurs among firms and organizations represents the 2/3 of the total exchange in the advanced economies. The course is designed to provide the conceptual frameworks and main methodological tools to gain understanding of the structure and dynamics of business markets with reference both to upstream and downstream markets. In particular, the course is structured in two main parts: Business-to-Business Marketing (B2B Marketing), principles of Supply Chain Management (SCM).

  • I part (B2B Marketing): the course offers students the main managerial tools: to analyze and develop company’s positioning in business markets, to segment business markets; to formulate and develop the value proposition with respect to business customers and to analyze their satisfaction. In particular following issues will be in focus: Understanding business markets; Markets as networks; Business customer behavior and SCM; Developing the value proposition; Segmentation and targeting; Analysis of customer satisfaction; Marketing organization in business markets;
  • II part (SCM): customer satisfaction in business markets depends from a complex "offering" generated by a multiplicity of actors. Every company should be able to cope with a complex network of supplier relationships in order to satisfy its customers. The objective of the course is to provide the student with a clear understanding and analyzing ability of the "upstream" market of the firm and with basic managerial tools in SCM.
