Topic: Brand Appearances in Different Markets

About 150 Students will team up in groups of three and choose a brand that operates in different international markets. The assignment is to find differences in the promotional approach / advertisement between countries as well as media channels. Differences which have been identified are then presented in 90 seconds – it is up to the students to choose a format: each group can decide upon a creative presentation of their own (e.g. video, broadcast, news broadcast, social media posting/story,…)

We are looking for lecturers from the following fields:
Advertising, marketing, communication, international/intercultural communication, knowledge of cultural differences, branding,… as well as for someone with experience in dramaturgy and production/staging.
