Marketing entails many different things. Many think about advertising, but marketing is so much more than that. At the Marketing program we work with identifying and meeting the market. It concerns understanding the customers’ needs and creating, communicating and delivering value for the customer. As a marketer it is your task to fulfill the customers’ needs and sell solutions to the customer, in order to ensure that the company is making money and can develop new products, services and experiences. The semesters of the Marketing program are based on different perspectives and incorporates different subjects to give well-rounded understanding. During the first semester we start with the basics; the second semester takes on the perspective of the customer; the third semester takes on the perspective of the company. The fourth semester is planned so that you can go abroad as an exchange student to one of our many partner universities, which would give you valuable international experience. The fifth and sixths semesters we focus on meeting the market.

The Marketing program is characterized by a high tempo and a mix of theoretical and practical knowledge. Please note that the program is given in English in it’s entirely.
