You will learn how to approach an issue with a critical mindset and how to react swiftly in unexpected situations with a creative and open-minded attitude. Throughout the project, tutoring is provided by an ESCP Business School professor and/or an experienced consultant.

Marketing as a discipline is undergoing a drastic evolution, some would say that it is having to reinvent itself. Many contextual factors and some internal factors have precipitated this evolution. Technological progress has given consumers, and more generally customers, easier access to information for which they used to rely largely on marketers. Customers themselves have developed greater scepticism and claim greater control. Greater levels of competition have led to increased commoditization of products and services. The boundaries between products and services are blurring as more goods have become virtual and more products have intangible, service-like features.

At the same time, in many firms, marketing departments have lost their influence and are struggling to justify the cost of their activities in terms of quantifiable returns.

New marketing channels such as social media are challenging marketers to come up with new ways of thinking about their activities. Creativity has long been thought to be a valuable management resource, but is often thought to be riskier and less credible than hard core analysis. The changing landscape described above and more rigorous approaches to creativity make it a very plausible competence for marketers to explore and harness.

This module will investigate uses of creativity in a range of marketing domains and show that its use is associated with best practices in many areas. It is the foundation of a marketing practice that begins to address the crucial issues faced by marketers and to strengthen the case for marketing as a key management function.



Professor in the Department of Marketing.

“I signed up to the MBA in International Management to do something that was fulfilling and worthwhile. I achieved this directly through its courses, competitions, knowledge sessions, and the plethora of projects that we were assigned. However, ultimately what I treasured most were the things I learned indirectly through the interactions that I had with the people I have met throughout this whole journey. I treasure the friends I have made, the experiences they have shared with me, those that we have shared together, and lastly those we are sharing right now as we graduate. That’s it in a nutshell, my MBA in International Management at ESCP Business School.”



Class of 2018

Several key points attracted me when I discovered the MBA in International Management at ESCP Business School. First, it is a full time MBA in two different countries, with a strong multicultural approach. Secondly, becoming a member of the ESCP Business School network is a great asset when you want to work internationally. Lastly, having the opportunity to merge both in class courses and professional experience with Company Consultancy Projects provide us a well tailored balance that I believe will be well recognised in the job market.”
