Business-to-business marketing and purchasingAdd to Favourites
The MSc in Economics and Business Administration - Business-to-Business Marketing and Purchasing focuses on the managerial challenges related to operating in industrial markets. It prepares students for a wide range of careers, mainly in the private sector. Students on the programme gain skills in areas such as business-to-business marketing and strategy, purchasing management, relationship management, innovation, pricing, and the regulation of cooperation in business markets.
Deep understanding of business markets
Firms operating in business markets cater to the needs of other firms rather than private households, and in so doing they face specific challenges and opportunities. Business-to-business activities constitute the main part of any developed economy, and managers who are able to understand, develop and manage such activities – upstream as well as downstream – are an important asset to firms.
The first semester of the programme provides students with a deep understanding of how business markets work through courses in buyer– supplier relationships and networks as well as the innovation and development of these relationships. The prerequisite courses, which provide students with a solid academic foundation and prepare them for the specialisation courses of the second semester, also include general marketing theory and research methods. The specialisation courses that follow cover topics such as business-to-business purchasing management, business-to-business sales and marketing management, pricing, and the regulation of marketing and purchasing cooperation.
