Monsieur Arnaud MICHEL, Ingénieur de Gestion SBS-EM de l’ULB a reçu ce 2 décembre 2014 le prix de l’économie sociale 2014 pour son mémoire intitulé «The impact of community currencies : A systematic Review». Le mémoire de Monsieur Michel a été effectué sous la direction du Professeur Marek Hudon (SBS-EM).

«Le jury a apprécié l’originalité du mémoire d’Arnaud Michel qui a réalisé la première étude synthétisant les connaissances scientifiques sur l’impact économique, social et environnemental des monnaies complémentaires ou communautaires dans le monde. Ce travail constitue ainsi l'un des travaux les plus complets sur la question et est basé sur l’analyse d’une impressionnante base de données de plus de 1000 articles ou livres scientifiques collectée par le lauréat. Par ailleurs, le jury a décidé d’accorder une mention spéciale à Thibaut Leroy dont le mémoire apporte un éclairage nouveau sur les community land trust et propose des pistes intéressantes pour le développement de celles-ci en Belgique».

Le prix pour le travail de recherche consiste en la publication de celui-ci en livre numérique sur le site de Luc Pire et sur d’autres à déterminer par les organisateurs et l’éditeur - Editions Luc Pire. Le lauréat recevra également une bourse de 1.000 euros.

Emerging Trends in Marketing
Lecture Visit of Prof. Dr. Vel Prakash from University of Wollongong in Dubai, UAE
On the 7th of October the Advanced Marketing lecture hosted a guest speech about the recent study “Emerging Trends in Marketing” by Dr. Prakash Vel. The impact of changing technological trends on marketing is imperative. Lack of insight by marketers has resulted in the down fall of well-known brands. As insightful marketers adapt to key trends, others either ignore new advancements until their strategies run obsolete. The time used to bail firms out of such archaic circumstances might have placed competitors ahead. The traditional marketing elements that have been used previously to root brands have totally changed in the last decade with the rise of internet access, social media, and technological advancements. Contemporary marketing strategies are driven by some key trends which cannot be ignored anymore. Identifying such salient trends and their contribution to marketing strategy development is critical to success of modern-day firms. The study assesses literature on 14 trends based on discussions with industry experts and data from a global perspective.
