Business School – Bachelor's level (all)

Which courses are suitable for me?

If you are a Bachelor's student: You can choose your business courses from the bachelor's level courses only. Master's level courses are usually not open to Bachelor/undergraduate students. Exceptions can only be made if you are in your 4th year of an undergraduate program at the time you come to Mannheim. Your contact person is Ms. Christina Paul (christina.paul[at]uni-mannheim.de), departmental exchange coordinator at our Business School.

If you are a Master's/MBA student: You can choose Business courses from all master's level courses. Should your home university allow you to take selected bachelor's level courses, those are of course also open to you.

Description:
In a recent survey of the 100 largest Fortune Global 500 companies, public relations firm Burson-Marsteller (www.burson-marsteller.com) found that more than three-quarters (79%) of the top 100 companies are using at least one of the four social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, or corporate  blogs. The study reported that people are following companies for news and information about the company, products, and promotions, to offer feedback, and to engage customer service. In another study, eMarketer reports that the US social media advertising spending will hit $2.0 billion. Clearly, social media marketing has emerged as an important marketing strategy.

In this course we will focus on the following:

• Why social medium has become important for the future of business
• How can social media marketing strategies be constructed and implemented
• What changes in the corporate culture are required
• The limitations of social media marketing
• Measuring the effectiveness of social media strategies

This course requires you to modify the current marketing strategies such as segmentation, targeting, and positioning. We will learn how the traditional business model of mass production of communication is meaningless and irrelevant in social networks.

Students must attend at least 8 sessions out of the total 10 sessions. If the attendance falls below 80%, the student will not be allowed to take the final exam and will also receive a penalty of 50% in the submitted case studies.

All participants are required to bring laptops to class.
