Soundly acquired knowledge and new combinable skills (analytical and conceptual skills, instrumental knowledge) and the practised basic approach (market orientation and responsible action in practice) are an indispensable necessity for success in the world of work that is changing ever more rapidly.
Future developments for professional profiles in marketing will be:
• the increasing significance of digital competencies;
• analytical competencies, such as advanced analytics;
• “contentual” competencies, such as storytelling;
• the ability to think and work in a solution-oriented manner;
