Everyone must accept the fact that
modern technology has changed marketing forever. Although marketing has been around since the
industrial revolution, our lives, our communications, and our shopping habits have all changed since
the turn of the century. The Internet and modern technology are among the biggest and most obvious
reasons. Modern technology has made marketplaces to give way to market spaces. Prior to the 21st
century, a company may have launch a marketing campaign and it would have taken weeks to know
whether it was successful or not. Today, using the internet and social media, companies will be able
to learn about the success of their campaigns almost instantly.
Although ATL advertising is still used today, most advertisements are found on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Social media advertising has made the seeker and engagement channels a popular marketing strategy. Whilst the complexity of managing the channels increase, it is possible to measure the impact of every channel on marketing ROI; Thanks to Marketing Technology (MarTech).
MarTech tools have made it possible for companies to streamline and automate marketing processes, collect and analyze data, and engage with its target audience in multiple ways. Through continuous analysis that can help informed decision-making, MarTech has made marketing a far more cost-effective function. Today, many marketers are looking to technology as a bright spot. According to Gartner, technology currently accounts for the largest proportion of marketing budgets (26.2%), compared to media (24.8%), in-house labour (24.5%) and agencies (23.7%). Companies need high-end experts to enhance their existing MarTech strategy, as well as day-to-day specialists who know how to implement newly integrated platforms and applications.
Keeping the changing trends in mind, JAGSoM has developed a specialized curriculum under the Marketing Major of the PGDM program, named ‘Career Track in MarTech’. JAGSoM is the only business school in India that offers students an opportunity to undertake a specialization in MarTech jointly with Darden School of Business, University of Virginia with an opportunity to work on industry problems in the MarTech domain under the ‘Learning by Solving’ initiative.

We look forward to working with you to solve real life business problems through our unique initiatives including Request for Problems (RFP) projects and Long duration Internships.
