Descrição do Programa

The course – to be conducted totally face-to-face - provides a foundation of knowledge on some of the latest marketing trends. Current changes resulting from globalization (and de-globalization) and approximation of markets allowed us to identify a different set of lines of thought and actions taken by consumers and organizations in their attempts to survive and adapt to this new environment in which business are taking place. Therefore, this course will seek to recognize the major market and consumer trends, which characterize the present business scenario, and strongly marked by the digital paradigm.
