SELECTED REFERENCES

I participated in the program to deepen my knowledge because I would like to specialize in this direction. I particularly liked the extensive topic blocks. We learned a bit of everything. I also liked the fact that we were always given the recordings and minutes so that we could refer to them if necessary. I would recommend the program to those who want to expand their knowledge in a "short" time and become more confident in dealing with marketplaces.

I took part in the program because the marketplace business is becoming increasingly important for every brand and a course like this, which gives me a comprehensive insight into all the relevant topics, was perfect for enabling me to make the right decisions for my company/brand. I particularly liked the personal interaction with the community and also the generally very straightforward approach and openness to all topics. I would recommend the program to others because it provides a very good overall picture of all the relevant topics and puts you in a very good position to make the right decisions with this knowledge.

I am the one responsible for launching the Marketplace project at my company, and my boss has made it possible for me to take part in the program as a means of support. What speaks for the program is the small size of the group and the different perspectives and hurdles of the other participants. I would definitely recommend the course to others, as it provides a lot of knowledge that you didn't know you needed. With the help of the Marketplace Uni you become a professional and learn to master the complexity of the marketplace world. I couldn't have asked for better preparation! I now have a plan that I am confident about and I am sure that I will be able to overcome all the hurdles that lie ahead.
