Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

- Knowledge and understanding: students will acquire a good understanding of the main marketing activities involved in the process of analysis, design and communication of value to customers. Moreover, students will acquire an adequate competence in understanding factors affecting the different roles of marketing in the firm in order to proceed to the formulation of appropriate marketing strategies. Knowledge and understanding will be fostered through classroom lectures and examples, as well as through discussions on specific marketing topics (also with managers and entrepreneurs). - Applying knowledge and understanding: students will have the critical abilities to analyse specific marketing problems and to develop a problem-solving ability by applying the conceptual models of marketing to the specific contexts. The development of these competencies will be facilitated by classroom discussions of case-studies, seminar lessons and, sometimes, case-studies development . - Making judgements: students will acquire the critical ability to judge and evaluate which marketing approaches and practices are more appropriate in different markets and firms’ contexts. Such results will be achieved mainly through the discussion of case-studies and the interaction with marketing manegers during the seminar lessons. - Communication skills: students will be trained to express themselves in appropriate language and to be able to communicate with potential partners (managers, academics, experts , ...) using a clear and appropriate language. This ability will be solicited through discussions with the teacher and the marketing managers on various marketing topics. - Learning skills: student will develop good independent learning skills that enable them to: - address the main marketing decisions within the firm and the related models for the evaluation of results; - undertake further individual paths of training ; - read and understand the specialized marketing literature. This will be solicited through the lectures and, above all, the seminar lessons and the in-depth material provided by the teacher on the blended platform.
