About me

I like to think at my profile as that of a person who can walk thanks to a pair of legs: one leg is my passion for and understanding of the creative side of projects, the other one is my attention to the organization's and business objectives.

Master of Science in Brand and Communications Management

Copenhagen Business School

Sep 2014 - Jun 2016
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • Brand and Communications Management is a two-year programme. - Understanding the consumer Through an understanding of social, psychological and neurological theories, I have learnt how consumers’ think and how their subconscious mindset and emotions affect their decisions in everyday life. Gaining deep insights into the underlying drivers of consumers’ preferences and decisions I am able to translate insight into communication and marketing efforts which better engage and interact with the desired audience for a product, service or company. - Perspectives in strategic brand management By combining consumer insights with knowledge of multiple theoretical perspectives on branding, I am able to choose the strategic approach to management of a brand which most effectively, meaningfully and uniquely will position it in the increasingly complex and competitive marketplace. Through hands-on experience with real branding cases as well as simulation games allowing to see the long term impact of strategic decisions on a virtual company, I understood when, why, and how practitioners use these different branding perspectives to achieve increased brand performance. - Link to financial performance In the program, I've learnt to align marketing metrics and financial performance and understand the chain of effects of marketing investments leading to financial performance. By working with tools and frameworks essential for modern marketers to monitor and manage value – founded in the strategic imperatives of brand management practices, I studied how to capture and determine marketing accounting and brand performance and understand how to link marketing activities to the company’s bottom-line.
