The Master’s in Digital Marketing at CBS: Your studies in Cologne

In many sectors, digital marketing is no longer just window dressing for traditional marketing but has become part of the strategic direction – particularly for globally operating companies in almost all sectors of the economy. As the diversity of digital media increases, there is a contemporaneous need in middle and upper management for experts who master both individual disciplines while also bringing management and leadership qualities to the table.

The English-language Master’s in Digital Marketing at Cologne Business School enables you to pursue a career filled with opportunities thanks to general and profound knowledge and well-trained soft skills.

Why study a digital marketing course in Germany?

Choosing to study digital marketing in Germany is a smart move due to the country’s exceptionally high educational standards. Studying for the Master’s in Digital Marketing at Cologne Business School means immersing yourself in a stunning, historical city which boasts outstanding international connections. With its forward-thinking, global approach and strong corporate connections, CBS’ Master’s in Digital Marketing combines a first-class German education with practical, real-world applicability arguably making it the best digital marketing course in Germany.

Studying Digital Marketing in the Master`s Programme: from Strategy to Storytelling

How do you develop an online marketing strategy that works both internationally and across multiple channels and media? The Digital Marketing Master`s courses “Digital Storytelling” and “Digital Strategy Development” will provide you with the answers to these questions. Here you will learn about the various techniques and tools of online marketing. These include storytelling, website optimisation, search engine marketing, conversion optimisation, and marketing analytics.

You will gain a deeper insight in the seminar “Digital Content Creation”, which awaits you in the second semester.

Focus on Social-Media in the Digital Marketing Master’s Programme

In the Digital Marketing Master`s programme at CBS you will learn how you can use Facebook, Instagram and Co. to plan campaigns that reach exactly the right users. Successful social media strategies require not only effective messages, but also the ability to place them on the right channels and keep an eye on the results. Learning how to manage and monitor various social media outlets is just as much a part of the Digital Marketing Master’s programme as gaining in-depth knowledge of influencer marketing. Use your knowledge in these key areas to build up a decisive competitive advantage and learn how to use large advertising budgets in a targeted manner.

Achieving Key Performance Indicators with the Digital Marketing Master`s Programme

Targeting and big data are two keywords that come to mind when it comes to placing advertising messages in a targeted manner. In order to measure success, it is important to set meaningful goals and ultimately achieve them with well thought-out campaigns. You will learn how this works in the second and third semesters, among other things, during these courses:

  • Omnichannel Commerce
  • Big Data and Cloud Management
  • Media Planning
  • Social Media Monitoring
  • Online and Social Media Management

Study digital marketing in Germany – in English!

CBS’ Master’s in Digital Marketing is taught in English and with business English also on the agenda, you will achieve mastery of both international business vocabulary and industry-specific nomenclature. This will prove particularly useful since almost all digital innovations and trends emerge from the USA. In addition to English, you will also learn another foreign language to further bolster your skillset.

Apply your digital marketing knowledge to real-life situations

Managers in digital marketing need solid business management skills to make economically viable decisions. These are taught in the Digital Marketing Master`s programme.

With a Master’s in Digital Marketing at CBS, you can apply your freshly acquired expertise in a business project or see how you measure up with others in a business simulation game. Alternatively, you can gain insight into the real digital economy during an eight-week-minimum internship. In the fourth semester you can also gain practical experience for your master’s thesis, optionally within the framework of a corporate project. Alternatively, it is also possible to write your master’s thesis during a semester abroad. Maybe in California?

Prerequisites to study a Master’s in Digital Marketing at CBS

For admission into the Master’s in Digital Marketing, you need a Bachelor’s degree, including 30 credits relating to the field of business administration, and advanced English language skills.

The world is your oyster with a Master’s in Digital Marketing
