Study overview

 

The master's degree program in Digital Marketing (DIM) aims to train full-stack marketers. A Full Stack Marketer is proficient in all or the most important disciplines of his or her field and can implement marketing projects from A-Z without outside help.

The course is therefore aimed at prospective students who want to understand and implement modern marketing. In three semesters of standard study time, strategic and operative digital marketing knowledge is taught, which the students apply in order in order to deliver target group-specific content in the appropriate digital format via the right channels.

The skills acquired during the course of study provide students with diverse professional future prospects which, most importantly, are not limited to a specific industry.

Lectures are held at Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and the Rothenburg campus in a blended learning format, a mix of online study and classroom lectures. This format allows students increased flexibility.

Teaching methodology

Flexible study! Thanks to the blended learning mode, the master's program allows you more flexibility than a standard course of study. At  Rothenburg campus or Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, you can attend lectures and tutorials for a few days each semester, take advantage of counselling services or simply drop by to study - whether alone or with fellow students*. Between lectures, you will be able to organise your time flexibly to a large extent. The courses are managed via the digital learning platform of the Ansbach University of Applied Sciences and you can access your learning content at any time - also via an app.

The advantages of online studies (high flexibility, individual time management) are didactically combined with the advantages of face-to-face lectures (practical exercises, social exchange) in a meaningful way.

The Master's degree in Digital Marketing thus offers state-of-the-art methods of digital university teaching for people with a high need for individual time management.

Study structure

The topics of marketing automation and search engine marketing are also a central part of the course. In order to optimally prepare students for their future professional life, the practical project "Digital Marketing Campaign" is planned for the second semester in cooperation with agencies and companies. After the practical project in the second semester, the third semester offers the opportunity.to explore certain topics in greater depth as part of the master's thesis.
