"Marketing strategies and tactics as well as the methods to measure them evolve very fast. It is highly important for me to remain updated on the new tools to maintain a modern thinking approach in my workplace. I have chosen the DAS Strategic Marketing programme based on the variety of offered courses. However, since attending the program, the richest source of knowledge has come from a combination of my peers, their diverse backgrounds and business orientations, as well as the most recent examples provided by the professors. After some modules, I already feel comfortable to implement the concepts that I have learned into my work" MELANIE VANDENBERGHEM, Marketing Manager, Firmenich

«This program has been very relevant to the work I do every day as a Product Manager. » LOUIS MAJA, Product Manager, Audemars Piguet
