Marketing

Marketing is the universal language between consumers and modern businesses. It is one of the hardest working departments in any given company or start-up, ready for any challenge. Businesses regularly raise questions on how to maintain a competitive edge. What is the competitive edge on a given day? What is the meaning of value? What do consumers need today and what will they need tomorrow?

Marketing specialists face these questions and come up with new answers every day.

A career that can change everything. Marketing specialists can bring a brand, organisation, or even a whole state into whole new heights of success. Studying marketing at KTU, you will have all the tools and knowledge to do so even before you graduate

Technologies of marketing? Technology marketing?

Both of these statements are correct. The best marketers are capable of adapting to any business environment and still remain flexible. We strive for all of these traits here at the Kaunas University of Technology. Not only do we prepare a systematic approach to marketing education, but we strongly encourage open collaborations with other faculties at the university. By combining various elements of technology, academia, and knowledge, you expand your competencies and prepare for a wider set of approaches to future challenges.
