Media has changed significantly in the past decade. There are new verticals, new platforms, and new content sources. So how do media experts continue to navigate successfully in this ever-changing space? What are the industry dynamics, and how do you stay on top of the competition?

In Media Platforms, Professor Miklos Sarvary will examine the businesses of the major media game changers – like Google and Facebook – as well as that of traditional media companies who have tried to adapt to the Internet era to learn from their mistakes and successes.

Miklos Sarvary is the Carson Family Professor of Business and the faculty lead for the Media and Technology Program at Columbia Business School. Miklos' broad research agenda focuses on media and information marketing. His most recent papers are studying agenda setting, user-generated content, social network competition and online/mobile advertising.

With this knowledge, participants will be equipped to make stronger decisions about their organization’s media strategy and tactics and better anticipate the next media moves in order to develop a sustainable competitive advantage.
