CEIBS MBA Lecture: Viral Marketing: De-Mystified
Please join us on June 9 for this exclusive online lecture with Associate Professor of Marketing Hyun Young Park who will put viral marketing under the microscope.
About the lecture
Since as early as the 1960s, researchers have been interested in how closely the world is connected. More recent analysis, leveraging data from social networks, has reinforced the theory that we all exist within six degrees of separation from one another. Given that the world is so closely connected, it is time to ask, can ideas or products can spread as efficiently and effectively as viruses do amongst people?
In this lecture, Prof. Park will reveal the truth – and the myths – behind viral marketing from various academic fields, including psychology, sociology, marketing and computer science.
During this event, participants and prospecive MBA students can expect to gain insight into what makes viral marketing successful, and how alumni have leveraged the resources, knowledge and connections at CEIBS to build international careers.
