Unilever Guest Lecture, Samsung Company Visit and a Boat Trip!

Last week was busy but fun for the members of Marknadsakademien. We started off with a guest lecture by Stefan Lagerqvist, Nordic Marketing Director Home Care for Unilever. He held a fun and inspiring lecture about marketing in the FMCG industry.

On Friday we headed to Samsung’s head quarter and visited their Nordic Head of Marketing, Adam Fors. In addition to giving us a tour around the office and demonstrating their upcoming launches, Adam held a passionate lecture about Samsung’s organizational culture and brand strategy.

It was also time for our second internal event this semester. We went off to sea to spend some quality time together before some of us head home for the holidays. But don’t despair! We will still have some fun events coming up before the semester is over, and the recruitment period for next semester will open in December. So if you’re interested in joining Marknadsakademien, stay tuned!

Written assignment:

A global photo and video sharing application (Company A) recently released an update allowing customers to share brief moments in the form of temporary videos and pictures. This new function is strikingly similar to another form of social media (Company B), which allows users to post brief videos and photos that disappear shortly after being viewed.

Company A currently has 300 million daily users compared to Company B, which has 150 million daily users. Your task is to develop a strategy for Company A to gain greater traction in the market space created by Company B: temporary video and photo sharing. Please complete this task in one page or less.

 

Good luck!

Marketing Academy turns 25!

On the lucky Friday, May 13th Marketing Academy celebrated its 25th anniversary, in the company of both current and old members. The evening started with speeches made by the current members, followed by a three-course dinner, and a mingle among old and new members. This amazing evening was a perfect chance to mingle with old friends and recall all the accomplishments MA has achieved in the course of over two decades. Both current and old members shared their personal stories with everyone, explaining how they benefited from Marketing Academy and why they appreciate the organization.

Company lecture with Incluso

A few days ago Marketing Academy got a visit from Marianne from Incluso, a start-up contributing to a greater ethnical diversity within the Swedish job market. As the name suggests, Incluso makes sure that individuals from different countries and with various backgrounds are included in the job market, and that their international experiences are appreciated. incluso

Marianne shared with us her tips on what to include in a CV, how to write an intriguing cover letter, as well as how to behave during a job interview in Sweden. Since most of us have an international background, we find all the advice really useful.

Thank you, Incluso!
