Pioneers Wanted: First Global Management Seminar on Digital Brand Management at UdK Berlin Career College

BERLIN, January 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

- Unique Post-MBA Masters Course "Digital Brand Management around the World" in Germany, China, Brazil and the US

What particularities do brands have on the internet, on smart phones and in digital media? What differences exist from region to region? How will digital brand management evolve in the coming years? Our first international certificate course "Digital Brand Management around the World" answers just these questions. Course begin is September 2014. Berlin Career College of the Berlin University of the Arts (Universität der Künste) is hosting the course in cooperation with three internationally renowned universities: Shanghai (China), Los Angeles (US) and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil). Further locations are planned. The certificate course for (digital) brand management is designed for corporate and organizational decision makers from all over the world. Participants obtain insight into the topic at some of the most pivotal locations for digital brand management during personal discussions with experts and as they peer over the shoulders of professionals. They'll see first-hand what works in digital brand management - and what doesn't.

Digital Brand Management is of increasing importance

Digital brand management has gained significantly in importance in recent years and will continue to do so: the number of brands on the internet is increasing-in part, because of new brands, but existing brands are also entering the digital space for the first time. Consumers are purchasing and ordering more and more on the internet and with their phones. They're recommending their favorite brands on social networks. Nevertheless, many brands fail on the internet because of cultural differences: Henkel, for example, used the national colors of the Ukraine for toilet cleaner advertising. Too often, the particularities of digital media go unused, especially the possibility to talk to consumers. Brands seldom offer experiences. Social networks are highly varied around the world and function differently according to cultural differences. If users from all over join together, they might boycott a brand and do it extensive damage: Guido Barilla, chief executive of the world's largest pasta company, made derogatory remarks about homosexuals and thereby unleashed a global storm of outrage across social networks. The environmental organization Greenpeace started an international social media campaign against Nestlé, which destroys Orangutan habitat during the palm oil production for its brand Kit Kat. Results: unused potential, improper action or crises on the internet cost companies enormous sums.

The globally unique, post-MBA course "Digital Brand Management around the World" seeks to open up the opportunities and borders of digital brand management on a trip to four locations and to make them useful to businesses and organizations.

Top managers from around the world come together right from the start in order to take part in the journey from Berlin to Shanghai and Tongji University; to Los Angeles and the Annenberg School; and to Rio de Janeiro and Fundação Dom Cabral. Visits occur about every three months. In the between time participants work on their own projects at their home locations or complete online projects together on topics of global, digital brand management.

Successful Examples from around the World

Events take place over seven days at each location: each day, there are late morning lectures with prominent academics and afternoon discussions with experts, as well as visits to companies, agencies and organizations. Participants are introduced to success factors and successful examples for digital brand management and they experience which business models could be successful for the future.

What uses do companies garner from participation in the course? They benefit from the newest insights born of theory and practice. They build their international network and connect directly to leading academics, practicians and universities on the spot and right from the start. They get a look into how they themselves might successfully and digitally manage a brand globally.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
