Marketing & Brand Management programme testimonials
This MSc programme offers both lectures on the fundamentals of marketing, and real study cases where you learn how to structure your communication and sell products or solutions effectively (covering topics such as brief writing, tender responses, identifying and assessing customer issues, events organisation, etc.). There are also master classes given by practising professionals, which enable students to develop a real and objective view of business realities, whether on the agency or the advertiser’s side. Finally, personalised coaching sessions enable students to enhance their employability, covering topics such as CV drafting with mentoring support from former graduates, individual and group interviews, identifying personal strengths and areas for improvement.
The MSc Marketing & Brand Management allowed me to develop great creativity, a product sensibility and solid technical foundation in marketing, communication and management on the international scope. I am today the China distribution area manager for the company JOG Swimwear. I am in charge of developing the Chinese market and I am working closely with 5 -star spa managers to develop partnerships. My integration into working life has been greatly facilitated by the professional dimension of the MSc. I keep excellent memories of my life in the Marseille campus and I’m still in touch with my school mates.
What I remember most from the programme is the excellent relationship we had with faculty members, who provide lots of advice and support in the fields of business creation and business development. What with the Pro-Act assignments, internships, case studies and other events, I was able not only to get great training, but also to start building my personal network, which proved invaluable when I set up my own events company. I am now able to offer a marketing perspective on all event-related projects, as this MSc programme taught me how to analyse, understand and implement operations based on clients’ requirements.
My year with the MSc programme proved decisive as it acted as a bridge between my academic training and my professional career. I was able to secure a permanent employment before actually graduating, which was a tremendous help. The Product Manager plays a critical role in a digital business: you have to be both creative, in order to design unique experiences for users, and data-driven to be able to measure the impact of actions taken. The MSc Marketing & Brand Management programme was definitely the best option for me.
I chose the MSc Marketing programme because I wanted a vocational training with a very handson approach of the professional and business world. I was interested in events management so the association with ANAé was definitely an added value. Many of the lectures were given by practising professionals in the field of events management, which enabled me to develop a clear vision of business realities and display a very professional approach as soon as I started working.
