Course Title: 0202 Marketing

Course Description

In the lecture and exercise, an initial insight into marketing is given. The marketing idea, which centers on customer orientation and the best possible satisfaction of customer wishes and needs, is explained, as are basic marketing theory approaches and the integration of marketing into the company.

First, there is an awareness of marketing. Then, an understanding of customers, who are at the heart of marketing, is developed. This is followed by an overview of how to analyze markets specifically. Then, the procedure for planning goals and strategies is explained. A main focus of the lecture is the design of measures within the marketing mix of the company. The basis for this is formed by the brand options to be defined, which serve as the basis for designing product policy, communication policy, pricing policy and distribution policy. These are also presented in detail. The lecture concludes with the control of goals, strategies and measures and the anchoring of marketing in the company.

The exercise to the "Marketing" lecture takes place in the form of Web-Based-Trainings (WBTs). Here, the presented contents are deepened by means of a case study, which is dealt with in a WBT series according to the lecture focus. In addition, practice questions help to further deepen the content during self-study.

  • Understanding market players
  • Developing marketing strategies
  • Designing marketing measures

Course Title: 0203 Advanced Econometrics

Course Description

The course will be presented at an intermediate to advanced formal level providing a sound methodological basis both for applied economic research and for advanced methods.

It is also intended that participants become exposed to current literature in applied economics and econometrics. It is assumed that participants have basic knowledge about statistical reasoning in the fields of estimation and testing.
