The world is changing… fast

A recent book by McKinsey's Global Institute, No Ordinary Disruption: The Four Forces Breaking All the Trends, draws on 25 years of research to shed light on the disruptive innovations that are transforming our global economy faster and more dramatically than the Industrial Revolution. It highlights four forces that are breaking all the trends:

  1. The rise of emerging markets;
  2. The accelerating impact of technology on the natural forces of competition;
  3. An aging world population, and;
  4. Accelerating flows of trade, capital, people and data.

We spoke to Dr. Hsin-Hsuan Meg Lee, a professor here at ESCP Europe specialising in self-presentation and digital identity. She is currently teaching a class called Creative Analytics. Her degrees in zoology and animal behaviour formed the bases for her scientific research training. Indeed, when she made the transition to marketing, she carried the habit and love of observation with her. She maintains that this is also why observation is still her favourite research method, a method on the rise since the emergence of the digital culture.

Tell me a bit about your Creative Analytics course? Can marketing analytics really be creative?

The Creative Analytics module is not about the debate and paradox between creativity and analytics as is often portrayed in popular media.

Being exposed to cultures from around the world was always a plus. But today, attending an international graduate programme is more crucial than ever in shaping our future. Juliet Perrachon tells us why.

My Facebook newsfeed used to be inundated with baby pictures. Earlier this month, the cute baby pictures were replaced by reactions to the horrific news coming from America on the murder of two African American men, and then of five policemen in Dallas. The week before that, it was all anxiety surrounding the result of the UK's EU referendum result in favour of Brexit, and the repercussions for the UK and its foreign residents.

Nicole Stokman, MSc in Marketing & Creativity Class of 2011, describes how she has moved from traditional advertising to creative marketing since finishing the programme.

Where are you now?

I'm actually in a bit of a transition! I'm about to leave 180LA, a marketing and advertising agency, for Greenlight Media and Marketing. I'm excited for this move because it will bring me closer to my passion: working with musicians and really getting to put my creativity out there.

The publishing industry in today's digital era and entrepreneurship in Asia

Jessica Circi, MSc in Marketing & Creativity Class of 2014, reveals to us that print is most certainly not dead and how digital has only made the industry evolve. She also tells us about the excitement of starting a business in Asia.

What is your current position?

I am currently a regional director of business development for a Singaporean company called AccelerAsia. The company helps European and American startups enter Asian markets. We essentially 'test the waters' for them and recommend on which markets would be most fruitful for their products. We then manage all these accounts until they are stable enough to set up an independent office in Asia. I am responsible for three tech companies who are interested in entering and expanding into Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines and Taiwan.

Retail in the Digital Age, Creativity Marketing, and Travel

Arita Celma graduated from the MSc in Marketing & Creativity in 2011. Here she talks to us about how the retail industry stays fresh in this digital era, and how her many life experiences have fuelled her creativity in an exciting career. She currently lives and works in London.

Please tell me about your career path since graduating from the MSc in Marketing & Creativity (MMK)?

Straight after the MMK, I joined the creative consultancy Goodpilot as an Account Planner. Sadly, the agency no longer exists, but its co-founder Pierre Humeau has set up a new and already successful agency RE_UP with Laurent François. Goodpilot consisted of a team of creative and strategic thinkers who believed that a big creative idea could grow across every type of media platform, manifesting itself at each touch point into engaging content that would interact with the consumer in a collaborative way. Whilst at Goodpilot, I was responsible for insight generation, strategic narrative development for clients (such as L'Oréal Professional and Lutron) and trend analysis - monitoring market and social trends such as 'Near Field Communication as a Marketing Tool' and their future impact on consumer behaviour.

As Founding Member of the Creativity Marketing Centre, L'Oréal offers our students unique opportunities to apply their creative skills to some of their strategic and business challenges. A recent example is the Big Picture project, where twenty five of our MSc Marketing and Creativity students travelled to Paris to work alongside colleagues from Institut Français de la Mode in February. 

Students were divided into nine teams and asked to define the meaning of beauty in 2025 and express it through a series of Instagram-format 15-second videos.
