Maria Elvira GALVIRIA (Colombia), MSc Marketing Management & Communication 2015
"Coming to TBS has been a very constructive and positive process in my life, not only professionally but personally. The M2C program combines everything I wanted to specialize in my career. It focuses not only in marketing, but also in communications, which, I think, gives more skills to the future alumni. It differentiates us from other marketers in the field, and gives us a complete comprehension of the industry. The professors train you to help you deploy your skills, give advice to explore your potential and provide guidance to develop you professional plans."
In light of the digital revolution, students are expected to master skills beyond the initial marketing or communication. Students must be able to juggle the strategic approaches by controlling the communication channels and understanding technical tools related to digitization and data mining. The Master of Science in Communication, Marketing and Management (C2M) will train competent executives who understand the challenges behind internationalization of a brand and digitalization both in the marketing approach and communication.
The C2M program will provide students with a strategic and operational expertise of traditional and digital marketing and communication tools. Students will create a synergy between the global strategy of the company and the communication plan for each stakeholder. The program enables students to rise to the challenge of the digital era taking into account data management, speed of reaction, and the optimization of the relationship with consumers.
Students will build new applications of data and connected objects in these areas while exploring opportunities for new business models. Students will be asked to pitch communication solutions that optimize e-commerce, following the new trends of tomorrow’s consumers.
Students will also learn how to set up an appropriate communication strategy adapting to the new customer, and they will be challenged to couple the quality of the traditional individual relationship and experiential marketing with rigorous and cost-effective methods of mass marketing.
The MSc program will accompany students in the acquisition of new skills such as setting up new methods of listening and analysis, understanding the new consumer and have new explanatory models, develop new approaches to customer relations and rethinking marketing in terms of legitimacy in the face of multiple actors and societal changes. Communication managers must demonstrate agility in their organization in order to federate internal forces around the project and thus create synergy between all departments.
With its campus located in the heart of Toulouse, students will be exposed to French communication firms as well as interact with communication professionals in London, Paris and /or Barcelona. Home to the IoT Valley, Toulouse will inspire students in an app-driven world.
