You’ll learn how to build customer value models that give you a better understanding of the value of your offerings to target customers and market segments and that help you deliver market offerings to better meet customers’ requirements and preferences. You’ll spend time on managing segments and customers and collaborate with an international group of peers, analyzing your marketing strategies, sharing experiences and broadening your perspective.
