The London Specialisation in Creativity Marketing Management

The Creativity Marketing option complements the MIM core courses by providing a cutting edge approach to marketing and management in general. Students will develop the ability to blend creative and analytical thinking in their approach to understanding consumers, managing products and developing integrated communications strategies. The specialisation is particularly well suited to students looking for a career in marketing, product or brand management or entrepreneurship.

This option is offered on the London Campus, developed on the basis of the MSc in Marketing and Creativity, an innovative and extremely successful programme offered for the past six years exclusively on the London Campus. The option takes advantage of the vast expertise of the London Campus in that area – including a) world experts, as well as b) the Creativity Marketing Centre, a centre and think tank in marketing that has being launched on the London Campus in June 2012.

Creativity Marketing is a new approach to marketing which recognizes that the job of marketers has evolved greatly over the recent past and requires new competences and a new mindset. Successful marketers stay ahead of the curve by putting creativity at the centre of their strategic thinking and day to day operational practice; our graduates excel in their subsequent dynamic careers in world leading corporations by learning to unleash the value of creativity both in themselves and in those around them.

The creativity element is infused throughout the option’s curriculum and reflected in the illustrative cases and best practices from a range of sectors including the creative industries and traditional marketing careers.

Throughout the curriculum, a balance is sought between a) creativity and b) analytical rigor. Much of the content is therefore devoted to the thorough situation analyses that must precede the elaboration of a truly creative marketing management within a recognised set of constraints. Best practice cases are studied in depth and discussed in order for students to acquire fluency in the combined use of creativity and analysis in their contemporary marketing thinking. Having reviewed the fundamental building blocks of marketing management, students will be encouraged to explore creative solutions to issues such as commoditization of marketplaces, consumer skepticism, channel conflicts, global competitive pressures, life cycle challenges and many more contemporary issues; and they will be encouraged to question or extend into the new era existing traditional approaches and to seek out opportunities to bring creativity to bear into the development of customer-centric marketing efforts.

Joining the option

Because of the demanding and creative nature of the options, admission to the option is competitive and requires a high level of motivation. Students must submit to the London Programme Office and the Director of the Specialisation (Prof. Minas Kastanakis) their full CV and a letter of motivation that will be evaluated in order to gain acceptance to this highly sought-after option.
