Mission e Programma sintetico
MISSION

Marketing significa apprendere cosa sia il valore, come esso si generi e come si trasferisca al cliente, in modo profittevole e sostenibile. Il Marketing è l’interfaccia professionale tra impresa e ­cliente nonché ponte fra le varie funzioni aziendali (finanza, R&D, produzione, risorse umane). Ponendo il cliente al centro dei processi aziendali, il Marketing contribuisce allo sviluppo economico, sociale e culturale della collettività, delle imprese e dei cittadini.

PROGRAMMA SINTETICO

Obiettivo del corso è stimolare e guidare l’apprendimento del discente affinché possa:

  •  Sperimentare l’applicazione degli strumenti gestionali del Marketing con un Business Game.
  •  Individuare percorsi di futuro approfondimento nel Marketing e di crescita professionale nell’ambito di tale funzione aziendale.

  1. Upstream Marketing: la ricerca delle fonti del valore. Analisi del valore per il cliente e dell’ambiente competitivo.
  2. Downstream Marketing: la generazione del valore.
  3. Marketing dashboard: le metriche per misurare i risultati e i contributi degli investimenti di Marketing.

Metodi di valutazione dell'apprendimento
  Accertamento in itinere Prove parziali Prova generale
  • Prova individuale scritta (tradizionale/online)
  •     x
  • Assignment individuale (relazione, esercizio, dimostrazione, progetto etc.)
  •     x
    STUDENTI FREQUENTANTI E NON FREQUENTANTI
    • Prova individuale scritta: la prova scritta ha l’obiettivo di valutare il grado di conoscenza dei modelli teorici, delle definizioni e degli algoritmi (con relative modalità di utilizzo) analizzati durante il corso con riferimento a tutte le tematiche illustrate nel syllabus analitico. La valutazione avviene attraverso una prova finale scritta di accertamento che prevede un set di domande aperte, semiaperte e chiuse. Le domande, di peso variabile, permettono di conseguire la valutazione di 31/30. Un esempio di ciascuna tipologia di domande è reso disponibile nella piattaforma e-learning del corso.
    • Assignment individuale: ciascun discente ha l'opzione di partecipare ad una simulazione di mercato che gli offre la possibilità di praticare i processi di problem solving e decision making. La simulazione permette infatti di segmentare il mercato ed analizzare il comportamento del consumatore e quello della concorrenza. Nel processo di decision making deve invece dimostrare la capacità di assumere decisioni di innovazione di prodotto, di definizione del prezzo di vendita, delle politiche di comunicazione e di distribuzione, giustificando tali decisioni anche nella prospettiva economico-reddituale. La valutazione dell’assignment si propone di verificare l’effettiva partecipazione del discente al processo di simulazione proposto e di apprezzare le performance reddituali raggiunte mediante le decisioni prese e le azioni conseguenti. L'assignment ("business game") è un'opzione offerta sia ai discenti frequentanti sia a quelli non frequentanti, esclusivamente durante il quadrimestre in cui è impartito l'insegnamento.

    Il discente ha pertanto l'opzione o di:

    a) sostenere solo la prova individuale scritta sopra illustrata.

    b) sostenere la medesima prova senza dover rispondere alla sezione di domande a risposta multipla, solo avendo partecipato individualmente al business game ed avendo completato tutte le simulazioni previste. Nell'opzione b), i 10 punti altrimenti conseguibili attraverso la sezione di domande a risposte multiple sono computati per ogni discente che abbia partecipato a tutte le simulazioni previste dal business game completandole, come segue:

    • 8 punti per i discenti la cui performance, conseguita nella classifica prodotta dal business game, risulti pari o inferiore alla media delle performance di tutti i discenti con cui si compete.
    • 11 punti (10 punti+1 punto aggiuntivo) per i discenti la cui performance, conseguita nella classifica prodotta dal business game, risulti superiore alla media delle performance di tutti i discenti con cui si compete.
