n the new era of digital economy, business models have evolved and companies have an urgent need to be more and more competitive, which involves the adoption of new strategies based on electronic business.

This course provides with a theoretical and practical vision of how to increase the business volume of websites thanks to a correct positioning strategy within the principal search engines on Internet. The knowledge of the fundamental rules of web positioning will allow the students to make accurate decisions about E-marketing strategies.


In this program students will be playing the role of a consultant in the eBusiness Task Force at e-Postremo Consulting, a technology consulting company. Working in teams, they will develop an Online Marketing strategy, under the guidance of a mentor.

Before starting students will receive information on the company they will be working for, as well as their specific responsibilities. This information is sent via email by a fictitious boss, together with attachments and links to other resources. With the help of a mentor, the roles each student will play will be established, as well as the schedule and delivery dates of the results of the work. Support materials will be available and mentors will answer any doubt of the students to guide them.

In this particular project, students will help a company to promote their products in the most popular search engines (SEO), to create a marketing campaign in Google (SEM) and to choose the best social networks to create conversations and promote their brand.

This learning methodology does not use exams as an assessment method. In the real world, and in a real job, there are no exams. You simply deliver your results and presentations. For this course you will have to produce deliverables (written essays and results) to your mentor, and show the progress of your work with oral presentations. There are no exams, but a continuous assessment of the work.
