Course Objectives
The course aims to provide conceptual models and instruments to manage effectively events and mega events to achieve communication goals through the application of advanced marketing techniques. We examine typical managerial decisions, from goal setting and targeting to creativity issues and evaluation of results.
Furthermore, this course intends to provide advanced conceptual instruments for the comprehension of creativity and entertainment as guiding principles that permeate today’s consumer culture. Through the analysis of events across areas of sport, leisure, design (set, lighting, multimedia, sound, theatre, dance, music, movies) students understand how creativity is managed and how consumers experience and use entertainment products, services and industries.
Besides a limited number of theoretical lectures, the course draws upon sessions supported by case studies, field projects, in-class exercises and participation by guest speakers from leading organizations in their respective fields.
